You were too young to do masturbation.This does not cause cancer,but if gets habitual,it does affect concentration & routine life badly.In the pre-married stage it may not effect,but after marriage you might feel its bad effects.Make it done in a limit.concentrate on studies & other hobbies.

Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic

Masturbation does not cause cancer.... but excess of masturbation can lead to fibrosis of skin over the penis leading to phimosis.... 3 to 4 times a week is normal... you can avoid it , by diverting your attention to studies, playing sports, avoid seeing porn movies or pictures,.. masturbation do not have any side effect on body..Hope I have answered your question..
