Is baldness preventable these days? For the past few weeks I've been noticing dozens of hairs falling out of my head every day, and I'm a bit worried.

I'm male, 27 years old. I'm in the southern hemisphere, it's springtime, and I've heard of seasonal hair loss before but never really had it, but for the past few weeks something's definately been going on. Every time I shake my head or run my hand through my hair, or even just sitting over a book, I notice several strands falling out. It's not normal.
Call me vain but I really don't want to go bald. I've heard of propecia etcetera and would pretty much take whatever to prevent losing my hair. How soon should I start worrying?
