The attorneys at Hollis, Wright & Couch, P.C. are currently investigating claims involving males who have either been diagnosed with breast cancer while taking Propecia (Finasteride) or have suffered continuous sexual side effects after stopping Propecia use. Finasteride is sold under two brand names, "Proscar" which is a 5mg tablet is used to treat benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), and "Propecia", which is a 1mg tablet used for the treatment of male pattern hair loss.
Recent studies have demonstrated a higher incidence of male breast cancer in those patients taking Proscar and/or Propecia than those taking a placebo. Patients taking Proscar or Propecia who are suffering from symptoms related to breast cancer, which including breast enlargement, lumps, tenderness or pain should report these changes to their doctors. Furthermore recent studies have also linked Propecia to continuing sexual dysfunction after discontinuing use of Propecia. Recently, after an number of lawsuits were filed, Merck & Co., the manufacturer of Propecia and Proscar, finally updated the label to indicate that sexual dysfunction may continue after discontinued use of Propecia.
