    Hi Kevin, I'm not aware that health anxiety or any anxiety can cause prostate or indeed any other sort of cancer, there is no medical link to it I can find.

    If you have health anxiety don't google! You can find almost anything you want on the net including complete tripe! 

    Certain medication such as anti depressants can enlarge the prostate which would give rise to those symptoms.
