I've survived prostate cancer for 5 years now after radiation treatment, but with the usual side effects. Is it harmful to masterbate?

In brief: No, please enjoy

There is no reason not to masturbate, and healthy to have the urge.
Is there any chance you might find or have a partner, that might be better.

In brief: No

No evidence to say yes.
Also, we are assuming the cancer is gone. Just do routine psa checks and you should be alright.
