A new study has indicated a correlation between baldness in African-American men and Prostate Cancer. The Study titled Relationship of Early-Onset Baldness to Prostate Cancer in African-American Men. The study found that the early-onset baldness has been linked to prostate cancer; however, little is known about this relationship in AfricanAmericans who are at elevated prostate cancer risk. The authors further “ observed significant associations between early-onset baldness and prostate cancer in African-American men. Interactions with age and smoking were suggested in these associations.”
Prostate Cancer is a disease if its detected earlier enough can be defeated. Men check out the symptoms from the Center for Disease Control listed below. If you are experiencing these please go visit a doctor.
Different people have different symptoms for prostate cancer. Some men do not have symptoms at all. Some symptoms of prostate cancer are—
Difficulty in starting urination.
Weak or interrupted flow of urine.
Frequent urination, especially at night.
Difficulty in emptying the bladder completely.
Pain or burning during urination.
Blood in the urine or semen.

If you have any symptoms that worry you, be sure to see your doctor right away. These symptoms may be caused by conditions other than prostate cancer.
There is no way to know for sure if you will get prostate cancer. Men have a greater chance of getting prostate cancer if they are 50 years old or older, are African-American, or have a father, brother, or son who has had prostate cancer.
