To examine, in a case‐control study, the association between the frequency of sexual activity (intercourse, masturbation, overall) and prostate cancer risk in younger men diagnosed at ≤60 years old. 
Prostate cancer: Sexual activity link with prostate cancer
TLDR
A case–control study was carried out to examine the association between frequency of sexual activity and prostate cancer risk and suggested that men with a high sex drive have increased levels of male hormones, which has been linked to an increased risk of prostate cancer.
Circumcision and prostate cancer: a population-based case-control study in Montréal, Canada
To investigate the possible association between circumcision and prostate cancer risk, to examine whether age at circumcision influences prostate cancer risk, and to determine whether race modifies
Sexual Activity and Risk of Prostate Cancer: A Dose-Response Meta-Analysis.
TLDR
Meta-analysis of the included studies indicated that men with fewer sexual partner numbers, older age at first intercourse, and moderate frequent ejaculation were associated with a significantly decreased risk of PCa.
The association between sexual function and prostate cancer risk in US veterans
TLDR
Higher sexual function was associated with a decreased risk of overall and high-grade prostate cancer among men undergoing prostate biopsy, adjusting for multiple demographic and clinical characteristics.
Relationship between Prostate Cancer and Sexual Activity: A Case-Control study
TLDR
Different impact of sexual activity in different age in patients with prostate cancer is indicated, especially meta-analysis or systematic review, should be conducted to clarify this issue.
Circulating sex hormones play no role in the association between sexual activity and the risk of prostate cancer.
TLDR
High SA as well as TT and FT were protective against PC and the protective effect of high SA was independent from circulating levels of SHs.
Adult body size, sexual history and adolescent sexual development, may predict risk of developing prostate cancer: Results from the New South Wales Lifestyle and Evaluation of Risk Study (CLEAR)
TLDR
A role for adult body size, sexual activity, and adolescent sexual development in PC development is supported, and a smaller risk reduction of was observed in men whose timing of puberty was earlier than their peers.
Sexual partners, sexually transmitted infections, and prostate cancer risk.
TLDR
The findings of PROtEuS are in support of a role for the number of sexual partners in PCa development, and the gender ofSexual partners should be taken into account in future studies investigating this association.
Evidence for Masturbation and Prostate Cancer Risk: Do We Have a Verdict?
TLDR
Findings included relations among masturbation, ejaculation frequency, and age range as individual factors of PCa risk as well as potential avenues for new research that could lead to more definitive statements about masturbation practice andPCa risk.
Erectile dysfunction and the risk of prostate cancer.
TLDR
ED is a harbinger of PCa in some men and Physicians should consider the possibility of occultPCa in patients with ED regardless of age and comorbidities.

Sexual factors and prostate cancer
TLDR
To assess whether prostate cancer might be related to hormone levels and, by inference, to differences in sexual activity, data are collected on 120 men and women over a 25-year period.
The clinical relevance of sex hormone levels and sexual activity in the ageing male
TLDR
Evaluating serum testosterone levels and erectile function in men with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and the relationship of sexual functioning to testosterone levels suggests that testosterone levels increase with age and sexual functioning declines with age.
Sexual factors and the risk of prostate cancer.
TLDR
A population-based case-control study of prostate cancer was performed in King County, Washington, in White men and Black men aged 40-64 years, and found no relation between sexual orientation and prostate cancer, although the number of men who had sex with men was small.
Sexual behaviour, history of sexually transmitted diseases, and the risk of prostate cancer: a case-control study in Cuba.
TLDR
The hypothesis that an infectious factor related to sexual behaviour could be involved in the occurrence of prostate cancer is supported, and a role for hormonal factors related toSexual activity cannot be ruled out.
Ejaculation frequency and subsequent risk of prostate cancer.
TLDR
Ejaculation frequency was not statistically significantly associated with risk of advanced prostate cancer and most categories of ejaculation frequency were unrelated to risk of prostate cancer.
Serum testosterone and sex hormone‐binding globulin concentrations and the risk of prostate carcinoma
TLDR
It has been hypothesized that high androgen levels are determinants of prostate carcinoma and this research aims to clarify the role of androgen in this disease.
Sexual problems in men with prostate cancer in comparison with men with benign prostatic hyperplasia and men from the general population.
TLDR
There seemed to be a lack of information about the illness and treatment consequences for sexual life, including what physical dysfunction to expect after surgery and also what possible help to expect to compensate for the shortcomings.
Epidemiological study of prostatic cancer by matched‐pair analysis
TLDR
In 1976, an original questionnaire, consisting of 111 questions, directed at the epidemiology of prostatic disease, was designed, and a high‐risk group for prostatic cancer was outlined.
Sexual behaviour, STDs and risks for prostate cancer
TLDR
Prostate cancer risk was increased among men who reported a history of gonorrhoea or syphilis or showed serological evidence of syphilis, and frequent sexual encounters with prostitutes and failure to use condoms were associated with increased risk.

TLDR
Environmentally-related variables strongly support the potential viral etiology for prostatic cancer.
