Some men with very large prostates have minimal bother. ...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

Says who?: Somebody is feeding you a line of pure rubbish. If this actually happened, we pathologists would see people sick or dead just from enjoying themselves. We don't.

Best wishes. ...Read more

Unusual to see...: You got to have a very long and flexible arm for self prostate massage.

I've read from several articles that frequent masturbation can cause prostatic hyperemia and thus cause prostatitis. Is that real?
Reading is good: Reading is good, and makes a young person well-rounded and wiser about affairs of the world. One's prostate gland does not know where one's penis is (for example, outside the girl vs. Inside the girl), and one's prostate does not know how the penis is being stimulated (for example, with hands vs. Inside the girl). So, the effects from vaginal sex or masturbation appear identical to one's prostate. ...Read more
