Prostate cancer: Frequent Ejaculation could reduce risk

Masturbation could reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer (Men should ejaculate at least 21 times a month). According to a new research published on the NHS website, the risk of prostate cancer is significantly lower in men who ejaculate at least 21 times a month through sex or masturbation. 

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK, with more than 40,000 new cases every year. Researchers from Harvard and Boston medical schools and universities studied 31,925 healthy men.

They gathered information through completed questionnaires about the men’s ejaculation frequency back in 1992. The report can be found in the Plymouth Herald .

The men, ranging from 20-29 and 40-49, were monitored until 2010, during which time 3,839 were diagnosed with prostate cancer. The results, published in the journal European Urology , compares the 21-timers with men who ejaculate just four-to-seven times every four weeks.

The researchers found that the risk of prostate cancer in men in those age groups was significantly reduced if they ejaculated at least 21 times a month. This was compared with men who ejaculated just four-to-seven times a month.

However, these researchers are not speculating on the reasons why ejaculating reduces the risk of prostate cancer. It has been reported elsewhere that ejaculation contributes to getting rid of cancer-causing elements and infections from the gland. Inflammation, a known cause of cancer, can be reduced by ejaculation.

The researchers wrote: 

We found that men reporting higher compared to lower ejaculatory frequency in adulthood were less likely to be subsequently diagnosed with prostate cancer.

This study notes that a range of other factors – such as genetics, lifestyle, the number of children, diet, nature of the sexual activity and education – may also contribute to prostate cancer risk.

However, the NHS website also says: 

Despite any lurid tales you may have heard growing up, masturbation is entirely safe. 

So if you want to do it as a preventative method, then it wouldn’t pose any health risks.

The initial signs of prostate cancer usually involve problems with urination, such as needing to urinate more frequently, due to the prostate getting larger. While prostate enlargement can occur as men grow older, it is important to check symptoms like these with your GP.

What is the prostate?

The prostate is a small gland in the pelvis found only in men. About the size of a satsuma, it’s located between the penis and the bladder and surrounds the urethra. The main function of the prostate is to help in the production of semen. It produces a thick white fluid that is mixed with the sperm produced by the testicles, to create semen.

Prostate cancer facts

From the NHS website

  • It usually develops slowly, so there may be no signs you have it for many years.
  • Symptoms often only become apparent when the prostate is large enough to affect the urethra (the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the penis). When this happens, men may notice things like an increased need to urinate, straining while urinating and a feeling that your bladder has not fully emptied.T
  • These symptoms shouldn’t be ignored, but they do not mean you definitely have prostate cancer. It is more likely that they are caused by something else, such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (also known as BPH or prostate enlargement).
