Should I talk to my doctor about my baldness symptoms?

Therefore, new onset hair loss should be discussed with and evaluated by your doctor. In preparing for your appointment, consider making some notes before seeing your doctor. You might consider listing relevant personal information, significant medical history and allergies, previous surgery and hospitalizations, current medications, and any specific questions that you would like to ask your doctor.
