Brief Answer:

About the excessive hair: further exams required.

Detailed Answer:


You should do some further exams to exclude a testosterone-producing tumour.

First, an abdominal ultrasound would give information regarding the ovaries and adrenal glands.

Except for an ultrasound, you need to check testosterone level.

These 2 examinations will give us information on where to get focused further.

Try to attach the results and will be a pleasure to help you.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
