Prostate Cancer and Masturbation

Prostate Cancer and Masturbation , Men who are sexually active at the age of '20 and '30 have a higher risk for prostate cancer. Based on research at more than 800 men published in the British Journal of Urology International (BJU International), it is especially when the frequency of masturbation is quite high. Researchers in England also revealed the results of research that sexual activity in men aged '40 has the effect of lower frequencies and even lower in men aged '50s to provide protection from prostate cancer. This research aimed at more masturbation activity compared with intimate partner relationships.

Prostate Cancer and Masturbation, Research under the coordination of the University of Nottingham researchers are taking the subject of research - with a focus on their sexual activity - more than 431 men. All had been diagnosed with prostate cancer before age 60 years, along with 409 control subjects.

The men who participated in this study are given a question from various aspects of their sexual life since the age of '20. Including at what age they become sexually active? How often do they masturbate and have intercourse? How many sexual partners they are, and whether they have a sexually transmitted disease?

"We find the relationship between sexual activity and young men the same as the relationship between prostate cancer in elderly men. The prevalence of the disease increases in men aged 50 years, "said Dr. Polyxeni Dimitropoulou from the University of Cambridge.

Hormones play a role in prostate cancer and treatment in general is to reduce the levels of hormones that stimulate cancer cell growth. A man's libido is also regulated by these hormonal levels. Therefore this study tried to find the relationship between the libido of a man with risk of prostate cancer.

All men with prostate cancer diagnosed at the age of the '50s. Most of the men who participated in this study (97 percent) were white and the majority married (84 percent) or widowed, separated or divorced (12 percent).

Some interesting points raised in this research are:
As many as 59 percent of men in both groups said they were sexually active (intercourse or masturbation) 12 times per month or more at the age of '20. This figure decreases with age to 48 percent in the 30s, 28 percent at the age of '40, and 13 percent at the age of '50s .2

As many as 39 percent of the cancer group had six or more female partners, compared with 31 percent in the control group.

Men with prostate cancer have a tendency to suffer from sexually transmitted diseases than those who do not suffer from prostate cancer.

Most men with prostate cancer have sexual activity (intercourse or masturbation) higher than men from the control group. As many as 40 percent of men with prostate cancer had the highest frequency at the age of '20 (20 times or more per month) compared with 32 percent of the control group. The same pattern was also found in men aged '30 and '40. At the age of the '50s, 31 percent of each group included in the category fairly often (10 times or more per month).

Men with prostate cancer more often than men masturbate than the control group, with the highest frequency at the age of '20 (34 percent vs. 24 percent) and '30 (41 percent vs. 31 percent). The difference is not too far away at the age of '40 (34 percent vs. 28 percent) and age of the '50s (25 percent vs. 26 percent).

What makes this study different from previous research is the focus of the research leading to youth and involve both masturbation and intercourse at various stages of life. Broadly speaking, this study found a significant relationship between prostate cancer and sexual activity in older men of '20 and between masturbation and prostate cancer at the age of '20 and '30. However, there is no significant relationship between sexual activity and prostate cancer at the age of '40.

The most rational explanation for the protective effect in men aged '50s derived from sexual relations, and especially masturbation. Sexual intercourse or masturbation is the release of toxins that accumulate during sexual activity and reduce the risk of cancer in the prostate. This theory has not stood stable and further research is still needed.
