No: There is no correlation between silicone lubricant and penile cancer. However, unprotected intercourse can lead to exposure to hpv which is a risk factor for penile cancer.
Dr. Lawrence Hochman

No: No, but exposure to hpv or uncontrolled hpv infections can indeed be causative for penile cancer. Other venereal diseases can also be causative factors for penile cancer.
