Sexually active men in their 20's, run higher risk of prostate cancer
A Study conducted by Nottingham university researchers revealed that men who are sexually active during their 20s and 30s have higher risk of prostate cancer compared to others.
Prostate cancer is most common cancer in men in the UK. Every year about 30,000 cases are diagnosed with prostate cancer.
The researcher enquired 800 men. Out of these 800 men 400 diagnosed with prostrate cancer and 409 men were free of these disease.
They were asked questions like how often they are sexually active, how many sex partners they had and whether they are diagnosed with sexually transmitted disease or not.
About two-fifths of the prostate cancer group had had six female partners or more, compared with less than a third of the non-cancer group.
In another result, it was found that 40% men in cancer group are sexually active in their 20’s compared to 32% in non-comparative group.
The research team was led by Dr Polyxeni Dimitropoulou
