Prostate cancer

Early prostate cancer does not cause pain, and most affected men have no apparent signs. A man's presence of one or two of these signs does not necessarily indicate that he has prostate cancer. The severity and causes of prostate cancer can vary widely. Early-stage prostate cancer can be treated with success, and several older men have prostate tumors that grow so slowly that they may never have health issues during their lifetimes, even without treatment. The cancer in other men, on the other hand, is more aggressive; in those situations, prostate cancer can be life-threatening. Metastatic cancer's signs and symptoms vary depending on where the disease has spread. If prostate cancer is widespread, cancerous cells are more common in the lymph nodes, bones, lungs, liver, or brain. Hereditary prostate cancers tend to develop earlier in life than non-inherited cases.

Androgenetic alopecia

Both male and female, Androgenetic alopecia is a common cause of hair loss. Hair also thins at the crown, often leading to partial or complete baldness. The pattern of hair loss in women differs from male-pattern baldness. The hair grows thinner all over the head in women, and the hairline does not fade. Androgenetic alopecia in men has been linked to several other health problems, including coronary heart disease and prostate enlargement, among other conditions. This type of hair loss is also associated with an elevated risk of polycystic ovary syndrome in women.
