Will prostate cancer come back if I masturbate?
 

I got prostate cancer and Dr. told me it was probably caused by excessive testosterone levels. Can frequent masturbation cause this? After my radiation therapy is safe to continue masturbation or should I stop to avoid the cancer coming back.

M, 53, Married, USA

 
Answer
 

You need not put an end to your source of sexual enjoyment.

While excessive testosterone has a positive relationship with the growth of a prostate cancer, itís doubtful if it actually CAUSES the cancer. Masturbation or other sexual activity does not lead to the come back of cancer. On the other hand, these sexual activities are reported to have beneficial and preventive effects on prostate cancer.
