Today malignancy causes many mortality around all of the word, primary or secondary malignancy imposed economic and emotional costs to patients, families and the community. Several etiology have been reported for malignancy, like genetics, microorganism (bacteria, viruses) and etc. Viruses are known as microorganisms causing various diseases, cancers and malignancies such as cervical cancer and liver cancer. Today, different investigations are conducted on the presence of viruses as an etiology of prostate cancer. In this review article, it will be indicated that viruses including HPV, HSV and XMRV are more recognized as involved in prostate cancer. Other viruses such as BKV, ADV, CMV, SD-MSV, JCV and EBV have also been investigated. Generally speaking, whether or not any of these viral factors are oncogenes for prostate cancer has not been proved. Research findings have been divergent. It seems that conducting studies through specific and similar procedures and consideration of factors differing between the two research groups such as epidemiologic conditions and background diseases is highly required.
