Prostate Discomfort?

Patient: HelloI am 25 years of age and I have been taking finesteride to treat male pattern baldness since may 2008, i started off taking 1.25mg a day for about 14 months and over time i gradually lowered the doseage to every third day, I always responded well to the drug but recently i started to worry that my hair was thinning more and thought the doseage wasn’t working so immediately upped it to everyday again, after about a week i noticed i felt a wierd sensation from my testicular area, it is not really painful it is more just discomfort from what i believe to be my prostate, could this be my body being shocked my the sudden increase in the doseage?, i have lowered the doseage again and seems to be subsiding slightly,thank you
