Pros, cons of drug proven to prevent prostate cancer should be considered, researchers recommend
Date:1/20/2008

teride could affect quality of life on a case-by-case basis.

With the exception of skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men, Dr. Lotan said. Men who are at low risk for prostate cancer might view taking finasteride as not very cost effective when considering its impact on their quality of life. On the other hand, patients at high risk might see it as cost effective because it lessens their chances of developing prostate cancer.

Because there is some complexity to the PCPT I think doctors hesitate to discuss its results. While Im not advocating for the drug, I think physicians should mention finasteride, especially when their patients are asking questions about ways to prevent prostate cancer. Patients should understand and be aware of the proven science thats out there.
