Is the seminal fluid microbiome associated with incident prostate cancer risk?

Prostate cancer has long been suspected to include an infectious etiology, although no agent has been identified. It is possible that one specific virus or bacterium is not significant, but rather the characteristics of the entire microbiota to which the prostate is exposed (e.g., the abundance and diversity of all microorganisms). This may be capturable by examining the seminal fluid microbiome.
