Does masterbation(masturbation) prevent prostate cancer

My friends doctor instructed him to masterbate often to prevent prostate cancer. Are there valid arguments/ studies that prove this? I have been researching it online but different sources claim opposite points of view. Has there ever been a study done to determine the prevelance of prostate cancer among men who have chosen celebacy for thier lives? Please let me know as soon as possible.
Thanks

I think I've heard this before, but I have no recollection where so I can't point you to a source.

I'm just guessing, but I wouldn't have thought it really mattered whether the stimulation was manual or from something (someone?) else, as long as it had the same effect in the end...
