Certain risk factors may predispose a person to prostate cancer. These include:
Age: Sixty percent of cases of prostate cancer arise in men over 65 years of age. The disease is rare in men under 40.
Race or ethnicity: African-American men and Jamaican men of African ancestry are diagnosed with prostate cancer more often than are men of other races and ethnicities. Asian and Hispanic men are less likely to develop prostate cancer than are non-Hispanic white males.
Family history: Prostate cancer can run in families. A man whose father or brother has or had prostate cancer is twice as likely to develop the disease. If several family members have had prostate cancer, and particularly if it was found at a young age in those relatives, the risk may be even higher.
Nationality: Prostate cancer is more common in North America, Europe especially northwestern countries in Europe, the Caribbean, and Australia. It is less common in Asia, Africa, and South and Central America. Multiple factors, such as diet and lifestyle, may account for this.
Genetic factors: Mutations in a portion of the DNA called the BRCA2 gene can increase a man's risk of getting prostate cancer, as well as other cancers. This same mutation in female family members may increase their risk of developing breast or ovarian cancer. However, very few cases of prostate cancer can be directly attributed to presently identifiable genetic changes. Other inherited genes associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer include: RNASEL, BRCA 2, DNA mismatch genes, and HoxB13.
Other factors: Diets high in red meats and fatty foods and low in fruits and vegetables appear to be associated with a higher risk of developing prostate cancer. Obesity is also linked to a higher risk of the disease.
Smoking, a history of sexually transmitted diseases, a history of prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate), and a history of vasectomy have NOT been proven to play a role

Phil Johnson, M.D. discusses how having a sexually transmitted disease (STD) other than HIV (such as herpes, syphilis, gonorrhea, or chlamydia) can increase the risk of contracting or transmitting HIV. Preventing and treating other STDs is therefore an important step for preventing the transmission of HIV.

Chapter VIII: The magic hood
Educational topic: Stereotypes in Coital Relations Professor Sol speaks with the sorcerer and witch apprentices about love, respect and the importance of using the magic hood in sexual relations. While the sorcerers agree that a real sorcerer does not use that note, the witches think it inexcusable for a witch to carry a hood in her backpack. A hooded sexual relation prevents unplanned pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases and emotional ailments. Reinaldo offers Magdalena a handful of hermetics to end her pregnancy.
Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease or STD that affects the genitals of males and females with small bumps or lesions, much like genital herpes. The difference between the two is that genital herpes forms into small blisters that will burst and cause lesions and open sores that are more painful than genital warts. Genital herpes is spread through sexual contact, and caused by the HSV-2 virus in most cases, but can be caused by the HSV-1 virus or the virus that causes fever blisters. There is no cure for genital herpes, only treatments to help alleviate pain and outbreaks.
Acyclovir or Valacyclovir
Both of these drugs are in the class known as antiviral medications. These are known to help kill off the virus that causes genital herpes. Even though it kills the HSV virus, the virus will always be present in the body and therefore recurrent outbreaks are to be expected throughout the lifetime of the host. Valacyclovir is a generic name for Valtrex, while acyclovir is known as Zovirax. These medications can be used to control both HSV-1 and HSV-2 viruses for genital and oral herpes outbreaks.
Genital herpes is an STD or sexually transmitted disease that is caused by a virus called the herpes simplex virus type 1 or HSV-1 or HSV-2. Many genital herpes are caused by HSV-2, but many people have very few or no signs and symptoms from the infection. Signs do occur, and normally appear as small blisters on or around the rectum and genitals. These blisters then break and cause sores that can take up to 4 weeks to heal after the first outbreak. Other outbreaks are certain to occur, as there is no cure for genital herpes.
Transmission of Genital Herpes
Genital herpes is spread by the sores on the genitals. The HSV-1 and 2 are found inside the sores that the virus creates, and are also released through the skin in between the outbreaks of blisters. The HSV-2 infection is normally only encountered during sexual intercourse or contact with someone who is infected. HSV-1 can cause the genital herpes, but is actually more commonly known as fever blisters. This infection is spread by oral sex with an infected partner, and can cause genital herpes outbreaks.
