Rogaine and prostate cancer
SB44 posted:
This may be a strange question but here goes. I had robotic surgery for aggressive PC in 2008 and am closely monitoring my PSA with regular ultra sensitive PSA's. My Dermatologist suggested using Rogain because my hair is thinning. I didn't think to ask him, but does anyone know if topical Rogaine presents any risk for PC recurrance or effects PSA in any way. Thanks.
