No family history of hair loss. Is it common for people to experience MPB when none of their close relatives have it?

Hair loss without family history of MPB
It is possible to experience hair loss from male pattern alopecia without having close relatives with the condition. That is, because hair loss can be inherited from either side of the family, and it may skip a generation. But are you sure that it is MPB? The hallmark of AGA is miniaturization in a pattern distribution.
