MOSCOW, 6 Mar – RIA Novosti. The growth of facial and arm hair in women can be a symptom of ovarian or adrenal cancer, said doctor and TV presenter Alexander Myasnikov on the Russia 1 TV channel.
Excessive body hair growth is indicative of hormone imbalance, he said. Since women produce ten times less testosterone than men, this is a good reason to find out why in a woman's body androgens have prevailed over estrogens.
“This is a separate story, but a competent endocrinologist, or a competent gynecologist, or a competent general practitioner should understand it. And just go to remove – it is easy to remove, but what is behind it, you need to know,” explained Myasnikov.
In addition, he said excess hair growth on a woman's face may be associated with a condition such as polycystic ovary disease. At the same time, menstruation becomes irregular, it is difficult to become pregnant, risk factors for heart disease arise, sugar and cholesterol levels can rise, the doctor added.
