Many people notice a pattern of baldness that runs in the family. One man wants to know that if his father is bald does that mean he will be bald also?
Hair loss suffered by men that has a tendency to run in families is called male pattern baldness. If there is a history of hair loss in your family, you may be at a higher risk. Baldness happens because of the genes people inherit from both their mom and dad. Some studies show that 80% of balding is genetic.
