A recent study was done to show the effects that Finasteride 5mg (Proscar) has on prostate cancer. The results of this study showed that the overall prevalence of prostate cancer in finasteride-treated men was reduced by 24.8% from the prevalence normally expected in men of that age. These results indicated that finasteride 5mg (Proscar) is effective in preventing or delaying the appearance of prostate cancer. But these results cannot be generalized from finasteride 5mg (Proscar) to the lower dose finasteride 1mg (Propecia), which is commonly given to reduce hair loss. Finasteride 1mg (Propecia) is currently accepted by the Food and Drug Administration as an indication for the safe use in hair loss but is in no way proven to prevent or even delay prostate cancer.
