Doctor Says Finasteride Increases Breast Cancer Risk


#1

Hello all,

After being prescribed finasteride for almost 10 years, my doctor doesn’t want to prescribe me finasteride anymore.

He says that recently a study came out that says the risk of breast cancer is increased with finasteride.

I forgot to ask which study it was, but I’ll make sure to find out.

In the meantime I thought I’d ask around here.

Anybody heard of this yet?
