I'm a younger guy in my mid-twenties. I'm taking generic Propecia to stop hair loss. I know Finasteride (propecia/proscar) is prescribed as a treatment for prostate enlargement/cancer. I'm wondering if I'm sort of killing two birds with one stone? I mean...the fact that I'm taking finasteride NOW....am I acting in my own favor? Or, is prostate cancer something that cannot be avoided if you have a genetic pre-disposition for it? I dont have a family history of if that I know of. Anyone know? ?
