See Your Family Doctor When Losing Lots of Hair
Hair loss is a scary experience, especially when its hair loss at a young age. Chances of hair loss while you're in your 20s is in the 20% range, but seeing how hair loss doesn't run in your family, it'd be best for you to consult your GP. Losing bulk amounts of hair is concerning for sure, so see your family doctor as soon as possible.
Go see a doctor!
However, don't panic! Instead of researching on the internet, call a doctor in your area and get evaluated. This is one of those times when email and electronic communication are not going to help you. You need to be examined by a professional. Remember, your family history may not tell you that you are prone to hair loss and you might need blood tests or a biopsy to determine the cause. Generally speaking - the earlier hair loss is treated, the more effective the treatment is so make a phone call today and get started.

17 year old male with hair loss. Whats the matter?
The most likely diagnosis is still male pattern hair loss I'm afraid. If this does get confirmed for you, then start Minoxidil and/or finasteride asap and review after a year
