No worries. : No. But keep it up, you might prove me wrong.

Dr. Canfield is just kidding. You won't prove him wrong. Testicular cancer strikes at random (there's an old bad study linking it to athletics that I think just reflects that a man who had lost a testis might exaggerate his past sports achievement.) Cancer of the penis is caused by HPV virus. Love safely.

not likely: There is no relationship between the two.

It does not: Forgive my frankness. Whoever told you this is either a fool or a liar. If this is a "spiritual advisor", you'd do well simply to ignore this person and everything else they tell you. Being a young man is difficult enough without this cruel, evil counsel. Enjoy being a man, think about something nice rather than internet trash, and be discerning. Best wishes.
