Can masturbating too often (for years on end) cause stress incontinence and/or BPH? I know I have the first one and I suspect the second.

In brief: No such relationship

Masturbating is not harmful and has no long term harms like you have listed.
If you have problems with urine control you have to look for another cause. if it is bothersome, you should seek advice from a urologist.
