Prostate Cancer

Does frequent sex reduce my risk for prostate cancer?

A Answers (1)

  • Despite many studies on the subject, there is currently no definitive proof that frequency of sexual activity reduces risk of prostate cancer. Studies have shown a slight reduction in risk, but not enough to be significant or conclusive. Sexual frequency certainly doesn't have the same impact on prostate cancer risk factors as age or genetic history, for example.
