    "The study actually found that finasteride protects against both lethal and less dangerous tumors and could cut prostate cancer risk by nearly a third."

    If you have a history of prostate cancer in your family, I would certainly look into this.

    muchmorethanmuscle saidOh no! Looks like Caslon could use it for both reasons.

    I was hoping that maybe some hair would grow back during the treatment. I never gave it a proper good bye.

    ...but you still have to die for that remark...and you seemed like such a nice boy

    Yup I take Finasteride to prevent both hair loss and cancer growth inside my anus!

    Fyi check out how I converted American health care costs into Jake healthcare costs:

    Step 1: Propecia -$60/month

    Step 2: Finasteride - $60/4 (because it's 5x stronger but I can divide it into four) = about $15 a month

    Step 3: Generic version of Finasteride - $10. Divided by 4. About $2.50 per month.

    i am amazing.
