Good question, many do fear it is communicable, and the answer is definitely not. Cancer occurs at the cellular level from chemical and/or metabolic changes and influences, not from a virus or bacterium, as would be the case in STD's. Even unprotected sex between monogamous partners is safe where PCa is concerned.
