    Male pattern baldness is responsible for the vast majority of male hair loss. Causes of male pattern baldness include diseases, medication reactions, stress, and more, but the most common cause is genetics. In male pattern baldness, the main symptom is a receding hairline and hair loss at the crown of the head. Toward the end of the stages of male pattern baldness, the only hair remaining is in a horseshoe pattern around the base of the scalp.
