No: Prostate cancer is not related to sexual activity, ejaculation, or masturbation. It is related to other factors such as family history.

Cause is unknown: The symptoms are vague and not specific. So screening with blood test/ psa levels is advised if you are a male between 50 to70 years old. Eat healthy and use low fat foods..With ample veggies and fruits with each meal. Keep your weight into a healthy range.This migh tkeep you healthy for a long time to come.
