I posted this on another thread—then thought it would be an interesting read as a new message………I know it will anger some–but facts are facts..

Prostate cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer among men in the United States (1Go). Although age, family history, and race/ethnicity strongly contribute to the etiology of prostate cancer, the role of other factors is less certain. A role for sexual behavior and associated infectious agents has been supported by some previous studies. In 1995, Key (2Go) summarized epidemiologic studies assessing sexual factors and reported modest positive associations with early age at first intercourse (odds ratio (OR) = 1.31; 95 percent confidence interval (CI): 1.1, 1.6), large number of sexual partners (OR = 1.24; 95 percent CI: 1.0, 1.5), history of any sexually acquired infection (OR = 1.86; 95 percent CI: 1.4, 2.4), and a history of gonorrhea (OR = 1.22; 95 percent CI: 0.9, 1.6). No association was seen for a history of syphilis (OR = 0.77; 95 percent CI: 0.5, 1.1). A subsequent paper (3Go) reported a significant increase in risk among men with eight or more sexual partners (OR = 2.24; 95 percent CI: 1.1, 4.4). Another study (4Go) observed a nonsignificant elevation in risk among men with a history of any sexually transmitted disease (OR = 2.06; 95 percent CI: 0.4, 11.2).

More recent evidence also supports an infectious hypothesis for prostate cancer. Based on data from a large population-based case-control study, Hayes et al. (5Go) found a significant 60 percent elevation in risk among men who reported a history of any sexually acquired infection (OR = 1.6; 95 percent CI: 1.2, 2.1). Compared with men who had no history of sexually transmitted diseases, men with a history of both syphilis and gonorrhea or those with three or more episodes of gonorrhea had over threefold significant elevations in risk. Serologic evidence of past syphilis infection was linked to an excess risk (OR = 1.8; 95 percent CI: 1.0, 3.5) and was correlated with the reported number of sexual partners. However, there was no association with serologic evidence of antibodies against human papillomavirus (HPV) type 16 (5Go). Most, but not all (6Go), recent studies found a positive association between HPV and prostate cancer (7GoGo–9Go).

Previous studies have been unable to separate out the effects of sexual behaviors and associated infectious exposures from sexual drive and activity, perhaps associated with the hormonal milieu. In an attempt to address some of these issues, we examined medical and sexual activity factors, over a subject’s lifetime, in a large population-based case-control study of middle-aged men.

Men have more sexual partners than women.  One reason why more women have stds than men.

Thanks Pandora, that’s alarming news.  It’s not something that adds to your “sexy”.    Major marriage consequences can occur too, especially if the marriage was already on shaky ground due to running around.  It can be the straw that breaks the camels back for the long-suffering spouse, and a new prima donna usually doesn’t to fool with it.

Yes, Jewels—and men should not be so bragadocious about their conquests of the past.  The number of men with prostate cancer is alraming….Maybe that’s why so many on here are so angry and spew such vitriol.  Of course it’s because of those d**mned career women!….It’s important to note that men on average have more sex partners than their opposite sex,( hey–they even brag about it on here…you know—F**k and leave them as one said….)One male with an std is infecting on the average  10 plus women or more—since they brag about all their bedded beauties—Just think, those “beauties” giving them cancer down the road………Hence the reason why the nuber of stds amonst women is higher.

it has been proposed that men need to have constant sex through old age in order to keep the prostate clear to prevent cancer..

I guess some would argue that if the wife is not a willing partner…

“There are some risk factors linked to prostate cancer. A risk factor is something that can raise your chances of having a problem or disease. Having one or more risk factors doesn’t mean that you will get prostate cancer. It just means that your risk of disease is greater.

* Age. Being 50 or older increases risk of prostate cancer.

* Race. African-American men are at highest risk of prostate cancer–it tends to start at younger ages and grows faster than in men of other races. After African-American men, it is most common among white men, followed by Hispanic and Native American men. Asian-American men have the lowest rates of prostate cancer. Aside from race, all men can have other prostate cancer risk factors (aging, family history, and diet). See the For More Information 1 section to request the booklet about African-American men and prostate cancer screening.

* Family history. Prostate cancer risk is 2 to 3 times higher for men whose fathers or brothers have had the disease. For example, risk is about 10 times higher for a man who has 3 immediate family members with prostate cancer. The younger a man is when he has prostate cancer, the greater the risk for his male family members. Prostate cancer risk also appears to be slightly higher for men whose mothers or sisters have had breast cancer.

* Diet. The risk of prostate cancer seems to be higher for men eating high-fat diets with few fruits and vegetables.”

These are still seen as the major risk factors. ‘Facts are facts’, yeah, well, it does a disservice to all those who got cancer via heredity to insinuate that all men who get prostate cancer have had multiple partners. I feel the same way about cervical cancer…it has been tied to chlamydia and other STDs, early sex and multiple partners as well. To turn around and intimate that every woman with cervical cancer fits those criteria is rash.

From the tone of the paper, it looks like more research is needed.

Cervical cancer

This factsheet is for women who have cervical cancer or for people who would like information about cervical cancer.

In 2003, around 2300 women were diagnosed with cervical cancer in England, with 95% of cases being in women over 35. Deaths from cervical cancer have fallen over the last 20 years however. This reduction is mainly because of the NHS screening programme in the UK which can detect cervical cancer at an early stage. For more information about screening, please see the separate BUPA factsheet, Cervical screening.
The cervix

The cervix is the neck of the womb. It is located at the top of the **bleep**.
What is cervical cancer?

Cervical cancer develops if the cells of the cervix become abnormal and grow out of control. The cancer can spread to other parts of the body. If abnormal cells are caught early however, which they often are through the cervical screening programme, cancer can be prevented or treated.
Illustration showing the cervix

Illustration showing the cervix
Symptoms

Abnormal cells found on the end of the cervix during a cervical screening test are generally at an “early warning” pre-cancer stage, and do not cause any symptoms. Treating the abnormal cells prevents cancer developing.

If abnormal cells do develop into cervical cancer, it can cause symptoms including:

* abnormal vaginal bleeding, such as between periods or after intercourse
* smelly vaginal discharge
* discomfort during intercourse
* vaginal bleeding after the menopause

If you experience any of these symptoms you should see a doctor, even though the cause is usually not cervical cancer. There are many other conditions that can cause the same symptoms, such as vaginal infections.
Causes

The exact reasons why an individual may develop cervical cancer are not fully understood at present. But there are a number of risk factors that make cervical cancer more likely, which are listed below. However, it is important to note that many women who have cervical cancer do not appear to have any of these risk factors.
Human papilloma virus (HPV)

99 percent of cervical cancers are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV).

There are over 100 different types of HPV of which only about 12 are important. Each virus is assigned a number and the five types most commonly associated with cervical cancer are 16, 18, 31, 33 and 45.

HPV is a common virus that can be passed on through sex. It usually causes no symptoms at all. In most women, the immune system will get rid of the infection so they might never be aware of it. Only a small proportion of women with the HPV types listed above will develop cervical cancer.

HPV is from the same family of virus that causes genital warts. However the types of virus that cause genital warts do not put you at greater risk of developing cervical cancer.

Other risk factors for cervical cancer include the following.

* Starting to have sex at an early age (before 17) may expose the cervix to HPV at an especially susceptible time. Plus, the more sexual partners you have, the greater the risk of getting HPV.
* Using the contraceptive pill long-term may increase the risk of cervical cancer. Using the pill may discourage women to use barrier methods such as condoms, which give some protection from HPV. However for some women the benefits of using the contraceptive pill outweigh the risk of cervical cancer.
* Women who smoke are more likely to get cervical cancer than non-smokers.
* A weakened immune system from autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, or taking immunosuppressant drugs after an organ transplant increases the risk.

Sexually active men have prostate cancer risk

The link between prostate cancer & promiscuity
Young men who are sexually active with more than one person face an increased risk of prostate cancer in later life. Research to emerge from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm points to sexual promiscuity as a leading risk factor in contracting human papilloma virus (HPV). Already linked to cervical cancer in women, HPV may explain why there has been a recent upsurge in prostate cancer in men. If correct, the theory is that once young men are exposed to HPV it kick-starts a chain of genetic mutations that can eventually lead to cancer decades later.

Research Findings
The Swedish study, involving 500 men, involved taking blood samples from young men who were showing the earliest signs of the disease.

Researchers found increased levels of antibodies to HPV and a link between this and the number of sexual partners. Some 40 per cent of 40-year-old men show early signs of prostate cancer. In most cases the disease grows so slowly that men die of other causes first, but in others the disease surges forward.

Yes, to give you a basic education with science data so that you think twice before you make the move as some self-claimed “manly” men. I think you guys like science right? Though the number of males in colleges/universities are getting less and less and less and less… with the time going on.

Frequent sexual intercourse and masturbation protects men against a common form of cancer, suggests the largest study of the issue to date yet.

The US study, which followed nearly 30,000 men over eight years, showed that those that ejaculated most frequently were significantly less likely to get prostate cancer. The results back the findings of a smaller Australian study revealed by New Scientist in July 2003 that asserted that masturbation was good for men.

http://www.newscientist.com/article.ns?id=dn4861

Masturbation ‘cuts cancer risk’

Men could reduce their risk of developing prostate cancer through regular masturbation, researchers suggest.

They say cancer-causing chemicals could build up in the prostate if men do not ejaculate regularly.

And they say sexual intercourse may not have the same protective effect because of the possibility of contracting a sexually transmitted infection, which could increase men’s cancer risk.

Australian researchers questioned over 1,000 men who had developed prostate cancer and 1,250 who had not about their sexual habits.

They found those who had ejaculated the most between the ages of 20 and 50 were the least likely to develop the cancer.

The protective effect was greatest while the men were in their 20s.

Men who ejaculated more than five times a week were a third less likely to develop prostate cancer later in life.

Facts are facts—

Yes, you willingly post ‘facts’ that link multiple partners with Prostate Cancer, and presume them the air of veracity and legitimacy, but Noer publishes a supported article on Career Women, and all of those studies are of no consequence and cannot possibly be true.

You also posted that HPV is linked to PC, another falsehood.

I wonder if anything you post is truthful, at all.  Seems most of it is a backdoor attempt at criticising men, based upon personal prejudice.

6 January 2006Prostate cancer ‘not linked to HPV infection’

Results of Scandinavian study appear to rule out a link between prostate cancer and infection with the human papilloma virus (HPV), which causes cervical cancer.

Previous reports have suggested there may be an association between prostate cancer and HPV infection, explain Dr Joakim Dillner, from Lund University in Sweden, and colleagues.

To investigate further, the researchers studied more than 800 men with prostate cancer.

Blood samples from each of the participants with prostate cancer were compared with those from four men of the same age and country of residence who did not have the disease.

Tests designed to detect antibodies against HPV-16, -18 and -33, which cause cervical cancer, revealed that 13% of men with prostate cancer were positive for at least one HPV infection, as were 14% of those without the disease.

Seems clear that there is no link, what with 14% of those w/o PC testing +.

If they used condoms, it wouldnt be a problem. They are getting the STDs somewhere that allegedly put them at risk. Your argument Pandora would make more sense if we were talking about condom use,rather than multiple partners.

Another stupid fulgy biitch trying to scare men away from sleeping with women hotter than her. Fugly chicks ALWAYS try to find ways to c0ckblock OTHER men/women from having more fun than they are having. This fugly old hag is angry that her life is over, she has been rejected by men and she cannot find a man to stand her..

So she does the only thing she CAN do–try to make other men miserable. This is one bitter old hag.

HEY BITTER OLD HAG, I will bang hot chicks and you will bang your head against the wall knowing that you are PAST YOUR EXPIRATION DATE AND THAT YOUR FUGLY OLD MENOPAUSE MUSTACHE LOOKING A$$ IS DONE.

The 99% figure is wholly accurate. It simply means that almost 100% of women who get cervical cancer, got it from HPV. It doesn’t mean that every woman who gets HPV will get cervical cancer, that % is probably much lower.

As for a link between HPV and prostate cancer, the swedish study is hilarious — they say men who are 40 years old “show signs of prostate cancer”. LMAO Can someone explain to me how a 40 year old male is able to “show signs of prostate cancer”? Clairvoyance? LMAO
The proper medical term would be “symptoms”, so I don’t know what the hell could be a “sign” of prostate cancer, other than clairvoyance, and clairvoyancy is not part of the scientific method last I checked, so trash that “study”.

Every doctor I talked with about prostate cancer in the past, just told me that every man who lives long enough will eventually get prostate cancer — so that means there is a link between men breathing and getting prostate cancer.

There you go again, using reason and common sense.

All you’re going to do is injure and anger these women with sexist male tactics like that. What you SHOULD have said is that studies show that men who have sex with lots of women are MEANNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And those who stay home and play Scrabble with their sewing circle are nice!!!!

That makes much more sense to the tiny female brain than the actual truth.
