Q. What is Hirsutism?
A. Hirsutism, defined as excessive male-pattern hair growth, affects between 5 and 10 percent of women of reproductive age. It may be the initial, and possibly only, sign of an underlying male hormone disorder. In some cases, hirsutism is mild and requires only reassurance and local therapy, while in others it causes significant psychological distress and requires more extensive therapy. It should be evaluated by a doctor specializing in hormonal issues such as an endocrinologist.
