View Full Version : Scalp Biopsy Results [23M]

Hey guys,

Last week I went in for a scalp biopsy due to scalp pain and inflammation. My scalp will literally feel bruised and tender in random areas; IE. it is almost never consistent where it will be painful. This happens after not washing for a few days or styling my hair or just physically moving my hair around. The dermatologist said there is inflammation all over my scalp. She did a pull test and concluded no balding. My hairline is around a NW1-1.5 (so very slight recession, if at all) and there is no hair loss in my crown.

A biopsy was done last week in the top left region of my scalp. I received my biopsy results today over the phone from the dermatologist's assistant and they came back as MILD AGA with slight dandruff. Nothing noting inflammation. No scarring alopecias were found. Nothing autoimmune related.

I have no direct family history of baldness. My Mom, Dad, grandparents, aunts, and uncles all had thick hair. I have thick hair. If it wasn't for this pain I'm experiencing I wouldn't even think about balding or hair loss as I have a full head of hair and good hair genes.

Should I be concerned with this diagnosis? Would most men with no noticeable balding have a diagnosis of MILD AGA with a scalp biopsy since most men recede a bit after puberty? I have no noticeable balding imo and in many other's opinions. Dermatologist last week said no balding.

I have a follow up appointment this week.


First picture is sopping wet. Very harsh flash used. Told before that that is just my swirl/crown.

Any opinions?

Should I get on Fin? The big three?

I see no balding on this photos. Just a cowlick.

The thing is mpb starts long before you can notice it visually. Id assume theyd be comparing the biopsy to other male adults, wait for the follow up and see what your doctor says.
