Does daily masturbation have a higher or lower risk of prostate problems?

Does daily masturbation have a higher or lower risk of prostate problems?

May not be related?: One would surmise that if one daily masturbates that there is a daily "draining" of prostatic fluids, thus, cleaning out the prostate gland. This said, one would think less prostate engorgement and less "problems". There are other reasons for prostate problems and infections, etc. May be of no consequence, but otherwise may have "beneficial" effect. ...Read more

Does lack of masturbation can lead to prostate problem?

Does lack of masturbation can lead to prostate problem?

Heroic abstinence: Especially in the past, some men have considered this a serious spiritual problem -- I have never understood why -- and struggled to avoid the practice, usually unsuccessfully and with a great deal of conflict. Anecdotally, this was associated with early-onset prostatism -- especially in the case of one famous mid-20th-century writer. It makes sense physiologically but evidence remains anecdotal. ...Read more

Masturbation at 20-30 's increase the risk of prostate cancer. while at 50's it lowers the risk .. is it true?

Just not true: It would be difficult to find a control group. There's not a shred of evidence that this is true. The claim that young men give themselves cancer in this way was made up by one of the cults to frighten vulnerable teens. "Heroic abstinence" is strongly suspected as a risk factor for benign prostatic hyperplasia but obviously we can't do controlled studies. I'm sorry people lied to you. ...Read more
