Hirsutism is the excessive growth of coarse, unwanted body hair on women. This condition causes women to grow body hair on the face, chest, back or other body parts where men typically grow hair. Hirsutism is a harmless condition, however, many women with this condition may find it embarrassing or emotionally distressing. Hirsutism tends to run in families, and in many cases, the exact cause is never identified.
