if a person had occasional priapisms over night for many weeks, is there a possibility for testicular cancer to happen eventually?

No relation: Do you mean priapism or just hard erections. Priapism term is usually used for an erection lasting more than four hours and generally requires medical intervention. It would okay, healthy, and harmless to relieve your erections by masturbation. In any case repeated erections do not cause any cancer.

What's that?: "Occasional priapisms?" If you're otherwise healthy and describing the night when you've had a really good erection that you couldn't get rid of, you're no different from any other guy. Priapism doesn't feel nice and the head isn't hard. And nothing sexual has any impact on your testicular cancer risk.
