If a guy who masturbated throughout his high school and college years have a high risk of prostate cancer?

No: This question similar to asking if frequent sex and ejaculation during school years could lead to prostate cancer. It appears that the latter is related to a viral infection that enters the Wnt-1 gene of the prostate cell. This same virus, the MMTV is also associated with breast cancer and it is well established that men married to women who have breast Ca have a higher incidence of prostate Ca ...Read more
