Bald men may have higher risk of prostate cancer, study stays
The study, published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, looked at nearly 40,000 men between ages 55 and 74. Participants, who enrolled in the study between 1993 and 2001, were asked questions about their level and type of hair loss at age 45. About 18 percent of the men recalled having male-pattern baldness at that age.
In the follow-up period between 2006 and 2008, researchers found that more than 1,100 study participants had been diagnosed with prostate cancer and nearly 600 of those men had an aggressive form of the disease.

The study found a link that If men in their forties start losing hair in the front and sides,they had a higher chance of getting cancer. I guess they should get checked out , but we know how men hate to go to doctors! As if losing their hair wasn't stressful enough, now it may come with this awful cancer for some.
