To assess whether prostate cancer might be related to hormone levels and, by inference, to differences in sexual activity. 

Topics from this paper

Sexual activity and prostate cancer risk in men diagnosed at a younger age
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 and Inflammatory Genes
TLDR
A large number of patients with known or suspected cases of prostate cancer are seeking medical treatment for inflammation, which is an important component in the aetiology of the disease. Expand
Risk factors for prostate cancer
TLDR
The identification and further characterization of risk modifiers might provide insight into treatment and prevention of prostate cancer. Expand
Sexual activity and the risk of prostate cancer: Review article.
TLDR
Frequent ejaculation seems to be protective from the development of prostate cancer, excluding the risk of sexually transmitted infections, and multiple sexual partners may be Protective from prostate cancer. Expand
Inflammation in the etiology of prostate cancer: an epidemiologic perspective.
TLDR
Evidence from reviewed epidemiologic studies is suggestive of a role for prostatic inflammation in the etiology of prostate cancer, but additional large, prospective studies are necessary to address methodological limitations of existing studies, and to investigate a broader range of potential sources of intraprostatic inflammation. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Regarding prostate-specific antigen: let's not shoot the messenger.
TLDR
It is proposed that the actual reduction in prostate tissue PSA concentration over time might result in the promotion of high-grade prostate cancer. Expand

Prostate‐specific antigen testing in Australia and association with prostate cancer incidence in New South Wales
TLDR
To describe patterns and trends in prostate‐specific antigen (PSA) testing in Australia and assess its role in the increasing incidence of prostate cancer, a large number of patients diagnosed with prostate cancer in Australia are receiving PSA testing. Expand
Prostate cancer.
TLDR
Either potency-saving subcapsular prostatectomy or radiation therapy is effective in treating localized disease and new prospects for hormonal therapy of metastatic prostate cancer include antiandrogens and gonadotropin-releasing analogs. Expand
Sexual factors in the epidemiology of cancer of the prostate.
TLDR
The most striking findings relate to sexuality and in particular extra-marital activity; the engagement in sexual relationships with multiple partners ; greater sexual drive and the greater frequency of venereal disease among the cancer group of patients. Expand
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. Expand
Role of oestrogen in male sexual behaviour: insights from the natural model of aromatase deficiency
TLDR
The gender‐identity, psychosexual orientation and sexual activity of a man with a congenital lack of oestradiol resulting from an inactivating mutation of the aromatase P450 gene was investigated. Expand
Prospective study of sex hormone levels and risk of prostate cancer.
TLDR
High levels of circulating testosterone and low levels of SHBG-both within normal endogenous ranges-are associated with increased risks of prostate cancer, and circulating levels of DHT and AAG do not appear to be strongly related to prostate cancer risk. Expand

TLDR
The data suggest an association between prostate cancer and vertex baldness; this association between the pattern of AA and prostate cancer points to shared androgen pathways that are worthy of additional investigation. Expand

TLDR
A multifactorial general hypothesis of prostate carcinogenesis emerges with androgens as strong tumor promoters acting via androgen receptor-mediated mechanisms to enhance the carcinogenic activity of strong endogenous genotoxic carcinogens and possible weak environmental carcinogens of unknown nature. Expand
Androgen Metabolism and Prostate Cancer: Establishing a Model of Genetic Susceptibility
TLDR
A polygenic model of prostate carcinogenesis is developing, focused around a series of genes involved in androgen biosynthesis, transport and metabolism, which can potentially provide a basis for targeting populations for screening interventions and for implementing primary preventive strategies. Expand
Sexual factors and prostatic cancer: results from a case-control study.
TLDR
The results from the study lend some support to an infectious hypothesis for prostatic cancer and the lower frequency of sexual intercourse is also noteworthy and may be indicative of a hormonal difference related to sexual interest or drive. Expand
