Black Men Baldness and Prostate Cancer

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.
