He used to have really thick hair. he is fair skinned and ginger/blond. He had a few episodes of skin cancer for the past 7 years but his skin is under doctor observation every 3 month and so far all is ok. the lose of his eyebrows and body hair came suddenly. Doctor told him not no worry as this is part of aging?!... he's only 55... he is really conscious of it but most importantly he wants to know the reasons and what can be done.

He needs thyroid studies.

Loss of eyebrow hair can be a sign of hypothyroidism.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
