In brief: Several
Propecia (finasteride) seems to be a safe for most men concerned with hair loss.
A small small percentage of men experience sexual dysfunction (erectile or decreased libido) and men with gynecomastia may see an increase in breast size. Propecia (finasteride) may increase the risk of high grade prostate cancer. Most concerning is a recent canadian study that showed a small increase in male breast cancer with propecia (finasteride).
