Prostate cancer has been reported as the most common diagnosed in male malignancy worldwide, with more than 1 million newly diagnosed and also 400,000 deaths annually. Luckily that a majority of this cancer was a slowly growing type with limited aggressiveness. Prostate-specific antigen (PSA), still the physician’s primary weapon in screening prostate cancer due to this kind of cancer such a silent murderer, no symptom present until the last stage shown and it too late.
Those Interested questions come up like; do we have any protective behavior on prostate cancer prevention? While I’m doing the research on this issue, I found one interesting protective element that does not require the modification on daily life habits. Perhaps you only need to pay attention on your male instinct behavior. That mean you better pay attention on the number of ejaculations per month.

- 8 – 12 Ejaculations per month is mean ejaculation frequency among population.
- The more frequency, the more protective benefit on prostate cancer prevention.
- More than 21 Ejaculations per month shows significant protective benefit.
- This benefit is focus on a low and intermediate type on prostate cancer but not aggressive type.
You can see from the data that the more frequent ejaculation habits, the more reduction of the majority prostate cancer, low and intermediate risk type. It is not that joke or playing around! The frequent ejaculation can dramatically reduce the medical expense on prostate cancer treatment and mentally side effects of the unnecessary low-risk prostate cancer diagnosis. Let’s get safe from the prostate cancer and enjoy your frequent ejaculations.
