    I have prostate cancer. Nuns have a higher incidence of breast cancer. Prostitutes have a higher incidence of cervical cancer. Was there a reason for the question?

    Your sexual orientation is not linked to your likelihood of developing cancer...and guys seldom develop cancer when they contract HPV. Regardless, gay guys can still contract HPV. Its not like we are a separate species with our own genetic maladies...

    This! People need to go and get periodic bloodwork done no matter what their current health condition may be. Advance detection of hidden medical issues is beneficial to the person, their family, and to our society as a whole.

    Unsexuals are those who don't have sex at all.Unsexuals are non sexual
    people.Asexuals are people that are not interested in bisexual sex or gay
    sex or straight sex or solo sex or any type sex at all.I have a few single
    men like that in the past and they want to die that too.Some of them wanted
    me as asexless boyfriend & sexless lover and have a sexless friendship
    with me in the past.I told them that will never happen & they are not my
    type at all.They can't my own dating needs,friendship needs,and my other
    personal needs for me at all.I have a very high sex drive.Only other gay
    men with sex drives can meet my dating needs for me at all.I have got
    1 sexless male friendship in my life & it's with my straight married male
    friend.i'm not interested in having any more sexless friendships in my
    life at all.

    Sexual Orientation can increase the risk for cancer but not by genetic means as swmrh911 pointed out. The California Health Interview Survey from 2001, 2003 and 2005 from 7,252 women and 3,690 men who were diagnosed with cancer as adults found that gay men were nearly twice as likely as straight men to have had cancer.

    One of the reasons given were that gay men were more likely to be HIV positive. HIV increases risk for anal, lung, and testicular cancers also the lymphomas like Hodgkin's disease.

    Gay men had other risk factors for cancer such as cigarette smoking. A study published in 2009 in the journal Tobacco Control showed that 37 percent of homosexual women and 33 percent of homosexual men are smokers, compared with 18 percent of heterosexual women and 24 percent of heterosexual men.

    Excess alcohol has been linked to various cancers.. A study by Dr. Michael P. Marshal of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center revealed that LGBT teens are 190 percent more likely to use drugs and alcohol than are heterosexual teens, and that the usage rate is even higher among certain subgroups. For example, Marshal’s study, which was published in the April 2008 edition of the journal Addiction, documented that the prevalence of drug or alcohol use among bisexual youth is 340 percent greater than the rate among straight teens. Among lesbian youth, the number rises to 400 percent. icon_eek.gif

    To address the OP's question..I'm not aware of any malignancy being more common in straight men. However I'm not an expert on this topic..Although not conclusive, some studies have shown that infrequent ejaculations may increase the risk of prostate cancer..http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/prostate-cancer/AN01825
