Some of the major symptoms include gradual recession of frontal hairline, increased hair fall, bitemporal recession of hair, and thinning of the hair. The symptoms start appearing at the age of 20 and are seen to be prominent in people aged 40 years and above. The disorder leads to hair thinning near crown region, and maybe caused due to various genetic as well as environmental factors. The disorder can also occur due to hormonal imbalance, improper functioning of androgen hormones, poor diet, and excessive smoking.
