Does Vasectomy Cause Prostate Cancer?
Prostate Cancer After Vasectomy: Is there a Link?
While there are some studies that have been published that suggest that there may be a link between vasectomy and prostate cancer, these studies have significant methodological problems.
Other studies that have been published do not support the claim that there is a link between vasectomy and prostate cancer.
In fact, newer better studies suggest that there is no link between the risk of prostate cancer and vasectomy.
While prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men, with one in seven men affected by it, there is no known biological basis or mechanism for the vasectomy to cause prostate cancer.
Based on the available evidence and science, it is unlikely that there is any significant connection between vasectomy and the risk of prostate cancer. In fact, it is likely that behavioral factors, such as diet and obesity are more significant risk factors for prostate cancer than a vasectomy.
