Tests and diagnosis

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Tests that measure the amount of certain hormones in your blood, including testosterone, may help determine whether hirsutism is caused by elevated androgen levels. If androgen levels in your blood are elevated, your doctor may recommend an ultrasound or a CT scan to check your ovaries and adrenal glands for tumors or cysts.
