Alexander Myasnikov, the head physician of Moscow Hospital 71 and TV presenter, said that excess hair growth on the face and arms of women could be a harbinger of a fatal disease. He told about this on the air of the TV channel "Russia 1".

According to the doctor, such a non-obvious symptom may indicate the development of ovarian or adrenal cancer in the female body, which, if detected at a late stage, can lead to death.

The specialist explained that hypertrichosis occurs as a result of an imbalance of hormones, in particular androgens and estrogens. “This is a separate story, but a competent endocrinologist, or a competent gynecologist, or a competent general practitioner should understand it,” the TV presenter said.

Myasnikov also said that a woman's excess hair may be the result of a disease such as polycystic ovary disease, in which, in particular, there is a risk of heart disease and high blood sugar and cholesterol levels.

Earlier, Myasnikov also said that women are less likely to get COVID-19 than men, due to the smaller number of receptors through which the coronavirus enters the cell. According to him, SARS-CoV-2 does not live on its own, it definitely needs a cell - to get into the lungs, the virus must catch on to something.
