Hair loss pain is a key aspect of a person’s behavior when it comes to self confidence or self esteem. Hair loss pain issue is exacerbated in men who may cringe at the thought of a doctor visit. If a man is uncomfortable going to the doctor, he may be less likely to ask questions, point out symptoms or push for tests. According to a survey sponsored by Men’s Health magazine 25 percent of men said they even lie to their doctors, because they are afraid the doctors will get mad, they fear bad news or they’re just embarrassed.
