Does teasing and denial increase the risk of testicle cancer?

Does teasing and denial increase the risk of testicle cancer?

No: Some couples like this. This actually causes the prostate and seminal vesicles to fill tremendously, giving some men more enjoyment when ejaculation finally takes place.
