In brief: No and No

It is not dangerous to have an occasional glass of wine.
Men should not have more than two glasses a day, women one glass per day. It will not help fight your cancer.

There is evidence that drinking red wine may prevent prostate cancer.
There is no evidence it's dangerous. In vitro studies show that polyphenols in red wine may inhibit growth of prostate cancer- see http://www.Aim-digest.Com/gateway/pages/cancer/articles/prostate_check.Htm. Red wine contains resveratrol, a compound with anti-cancer properties, but for effective doses take high doses of extract.
