Not that we know of: I have had a great amount of research experience in prostate cancer and HPV. Prostate cancer actually happens to be one of the few cancers that we have a well defined causative timeline. Almost all cases are due to hormonal (testosterone) inducement. This is why treatment (may) entails testosterone suppression. Anyone claiming a role for HPV doesn't have consensus backing and should be doubted. ...Read more
