Howard M. Sandler, MD, a prostate cancer specialist at Cedars-Sinai Medical
Center in Los Angeles, says that he would consider taking a 5-ARI for prostate
cancer prevention on a trial basis.
"If I tried it for a month or two and developed side effects, it would
probably not be worth taking. But if I had no side effects, I probably would
take it. It might help me sleep better at night," he tells WebMD.
The guidelines will be published in the March issue of the Journal of
Clinical Oncology and the March issue of The Journal of Urology.
