Finasteride is FDA- approved to treat male pattern baldness, with 90% of men taking it experiencing either a growth of new hair or a halt to their current hair loss. But a new study shows that it might have other uses, too, specifically to prevent prostate cancer.

"We have found an inexpensive, effective drug that can prevent [prostate cancer]." He mentions that it previously hadn’t been used because of concern over side effects, but, also says "We have no evidence that there's an increase in prostate cancer death in the finasteride arm," Thompson said. In other words, the initial study findings about an increase in high-grade disease are not consequential.”
