Jan 26, 2009 ( -- A new study in the journal BJU International suggests that having sex too frequently in the early years in a man’s adulthood could increase his risk of having prostate cancer.


The study led by researchers at the University of Nottingham found a link between having sex frequently at the age of 20s and 30s and high risk of prostate cancer.


The link was particularly significant in men who masturbated. But the researchers found that some sex in men’s 40s and 50s have no harm or even offer some protection against the disease.


Prostate cancer is associated with hormones which determine a man's sexual drive. Having sex more frequently could means that the man has high levels of hormones, which are one risk factor for the disease.


A health observer said levels of hormones can fluctuate.   Having sex could boost production of sexual hormones temporarily leading to high risk of prostate cancer.


High protein diet has also been linked to high risk of prostate cancer, which is diagnosed in about 200,000 men in the United States each year.
