Prostate cancer favors baldness. Prostate cancer is one of the prostate diseases. Many people may attribute the cause of prostate cancer to their living habits. Few people associate prostate cancer with "baldness". However, a new study found that most prostate cancer patients have hair loss in their 20s.
Although people tend to describe balding men with extreme intelligence. Although there may be some scientific basis, it is still annoying to experience baldness at a young age. Moreover, men who begin balding at the age of 20 may have a higher risk of prostate cancer in the future.
The researchers first asked all people to fill in the questionnaire and answer the questions about prostate cancer, and then asked them to choose the photos that best represent their hair condition at the age of 20, 30 and 40 from four photos of baldness with different degrees. The hair styles in these four photos are normal, forehead alopecia, head alopecia, and both forehead and head alopecia.
The researchers also visited the doctors of the patients with prostate cancer and asked them to provide relevant information about the patients, such as the type of disease, age, stage of disease and treatment methods.
The study lasted 28 months. The age of these patients with prostate cancer ranged from 46 to 84 years old. After comparison, 37 men with prostate cancer began to have different degrees of hair loss in their 20s, while only 14 men in the healthy group had hair loss.
Michael Asa, an assistant professor at the University of Montreal, Canada, who participated in the study, said that only three of the volunteers who participated in the survey were in the third stage of baldness at the age of 20, that is, hair loss on the top of the head, and no one was in the fourth stage, that is, hair loss on the top of the forehead. However, statistics show that as long as you start balding in your 20s, no matter what stage you are at, the risk of prostate cancer will double in the future.
