Not likely: While I am not aware of any studies that examined this issue, i doubt prostatic massage will change the risk of prostate cancer.

Prostate massages have never been shown to decrease prostate cancer risk.

No: Prostate massage does not reduce prostate cancer risk. The 2 biggest risk factors for prostate cancer are male gender and age. You cannot change those easily!
