How long will it take for hair to grow back after receiving radiation therapy on the head?

How long will it take for hair to grow back after receiving radiation therapy on the head?

Yes.: Radiation or chemotherapy drugs are toxic to cells that are rapidly dividing. This means they specifically target cancer cells, but they also kill healthy cells that grow quickly. This includes hair cells (causing baldness/alopecia) and stomach cells (causing nausea or mucositis). Once the chemo or radiation is stopped, the side effects go away and hair should grow back. ...Read more

Hair on top of my head was plucked during haircut, leaving bald/thin spot. How long and what should I do to take care of my hair for it to grow back?

Hair on top of my head was plucked during haircut, leaving bald/thin spot. How long and what should I do to take care of my hair for it to grow back?

It will grow back: all by itself. Hair which is pulled out by the root will eventually grow back. In fact, there are many invisible hair follicles immediately adjacent to the pulled out hair which may start growing even before the pulled hair grows back. You should return to normal in a few weeks without doing anything special. Find another barber, tho' ! ...Read more

I was found to be anemic due to the large fibroids .My hair -head, has stopped growing.What could be the cause?After surgery, will it grow back longer?

Maybe but it depends: Your hair can stop growing due to major stress. Typically we think of child birth and hospitalizations but extreme anemia can do this too. Assuming your thyroid is normal and your blood count recovers after your operation, then we would expect your hair to return to normal. But expect several months to go by before you see a full head of hair again. ...Read more

I'm 19 years old  Havent had my period in 3 months &notice my eyelashes eyebrows fall out and not grow back .  I recently lost weight could that be it?

Not likely: Have you done a pregnancy test? Have you lost any hair on your scalp? Do you have any thryoid medical problems? Hairs grow and then have periods of rest and no growth. You should see your doctor or a dermatologist. If the weight loss was not intentional, your doctor should be seen as well. Good luck ...Read more

Fibrosis/keloid scar on my head. If I have it removed will my hair grow back through the scar? Will the scar be long and thin or round like keloid

Fibrosis/keloid scar on my head. If I have it removed will my hair grow back through the scar? Will the scar be long and thin or round like keloid

No clear answer: After scar or keloid removal in the scalp it is unusual for the hair to grow back through the new scar. It is even possible that you could lose some hair around the new scar depending on how large the original keloid was. Keloids are somewhat prone to regrow so you could also need some cortisone shots around the new scar or even other treatments to help minimize the chance of recurrence. ...Read more

My 8 year old son suffered from folliculitis. He now has had a patch in his head for the past 2 months. Will his hair ever grow back?

Maybe: The hair bearing areas are tolerant to some localized disturbance & will often regrow hair after the inflammation settles down.If significant scarring occurs, it can leave a hairless patch. If bothersome to a kid as they grow older, the area can be cut out & the remaining scalp stretched & re-aligned to cover the defect. ...Read more

Does head hair grow back differently if you shave it off?

Not on scars: Hi. Was the area shaved for stitches? Hair follicles don't grow out of scar tissue, but if the scar is narrow, and the surrounding skin is making hair normally, when it grows back, the scar may be barely noticeable. Your "topic tags" mention baldness and alopecia...those don't grow back normally! Good luck! ...Read more
