One of the largest studies to date showed no association between vasectomy and fatal prostate cancer.
An analysis involving 363,726 men showed no increased rate of vasectomy among 7,451 men who died of prostate cancer. A separate analysis of 9,133 men with newly diagnosed prostate cancer also showed no association with vasectomy, compared with 57,000 men who did not develop prostate cancer. Additionally, no vasectomy association emerged from an analysis limited to men who developed high-grade prostate cancer, as reported online in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.
