Your healthcare provider may use a densitometer to examine your scalp and measure the thickness of your hair follicles. If your healthcare provider suspects your hair loss is not due to male pattern baldness, they may:
- Examine your scalp for signs of infection.
- Take your hair sample and send it to a lab for analysis.
- Take a scalp biopsy to check for skin disease or alopecia areata (a medical condition in which an autoimmune disorder may lead to hair loss and patchy skin).
- Conduct blood tests.
