Can masturbation cause penis cancer?

In brief: No

Cancer of the penis is caused by a few strains of hpv, it's fairly common in some communities especially among uncircumcised men; the precursor lesions stay visible for at least months and can be removed for cure.
Enjoying your body like essentially all men do won't promote it, and you should ignore health advice from anyone who tried to frighten you with this tall tale.
