I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that (1) people who engage in risky behaviors are . . . more likely to engage in risky behaviors, and (2) as the National Cancer Institute points out:

"Certain cancer types . . . are more likely to occur in people who are infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The most common types are Kaposi sarcoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Other AIDS-related cancers include Hodgkin disease and cancers of the lung, mouth, cervix, and digestive system."

The article mentions HIV as a possibility but said the data wasn't there to make a determination. It also mentioned greater incidence of tobacco and alcohol use as factors.

Without specifying the types of cancers the article is largely useless.

One of the highest groups at risk for cancer are nuns. Nuns experience cervical and breast cancers at an alarmingly high rate when compared to the general population. In a healthy monogomous sexual relationship , childbearing, and lactation seem to stabilize reproductive tissues as they fulfill their purpose.

As for male homosexuality, it's the lifestyle which is unhealthy. We are all sexual creatures and the laws of nature cannot be escaped by choices which are unhealthy. That goes for gay men and women, and nuns. Does the personal choice of sexual partners and the happiness in those relationships outweigh the physical dangers? That's why it's a choice. Excluding a healthy sex life from your time on earth is not good for one's health. That's straight or gay.
