Men have been warned not to have sex too often because it puts them at risk of getting prostate cancer.
Excessive ejaculation can increase the risk of prostate cancer. Dr Charity Twumasi-Ankrah stated this on Joy Prime’s Good Living segment.
According to Dr Twumasi-Ankrah, CEO of Chartma Herbal Health Centre, men ejaculate approximately 400 million cells, which is equatable to one pint of blood. As a result, they should decrease the occurrence with which they have sex. Men can avoid prostate cancer by having sex twice per week, according to her.
“I keep telling men that too much of everything is bad. And you know as a man, if you ejaculate, it contains 400 million cells. So if a man just walks into a room with a woman and they have sex, he brings out 400 million cells. Now if the gland is overused, the possibility that it will cause prostate cancer is high. So at least do it twice a week. It’s ok. Don’t kill yourself,” she advised.
Prostate cancer is cancer that develops in the prostate. In males, the prostate is a small walnut-shaped gland that produces seminal fluid, which rejuvenates and transports sperm.
One of the most common types of cancer is prostate cancer. Many prostate cancers grow slowly and are restricted to the prostate gland, where they may not cause significant harm. While some types of prostate cancer grow slowly and may require little or no treatment, others are aggressive and spread quickly.
Prostate cancer that is detected early, while it is still confined to the prostate gland, has the best chance of being treated successfully.
She added that too frequent sex also leaves men weak at their younger age beyond the risk of prostate cancer.
Prostrate cancer has become a major health concern for men as the number of patients soars in the country. Hitherto, prostrate cancer affected only the elderly but these days, it affects younger men too.
