Prognosis of hair loss depends on the underlying cause. Hair loss because of illness, certain medications or hormonal imbalance improves with treatment or correction of the underlying condition. Hair loss because of androgenetic alopecia is generally progressive and the hair won't grow back naturally. Prognosis for this type of hair loss is good when treatment with medications is started early.
Hair loss, in most cases, may be diagnosed based on complete medical history, family history and physical examination. Tests, such as microscopic examination of a plucked hair or skin biopsy are done if the cause of hair loss is not easily diagnosed.
