I see that you've expanded your questioning to ask whether continuing to cycle after prostate cancer treating might increase your risk of recurrence. Here's an article that helps to answer that question:

Bottom line, cycling is good for your health and exercise including cycling can reduce your chances of recurrence. Supporting what @jerryegge said, you may wish to consider what seat you're using for maximum comfort. And above all, continue to be monitored by your doctor.

@tcanavan, did you ask your oncologist about cycling?

No I didn’t discuss riding a bike with my oncologist. However, I did discuss with my RP surgeon, before my surgery, potential fitness activities, to include running and cycling. My recovery plan started immediately with walking. After six months, I took a short bike ride.
Hope this helps to explain my lead up to riding a bike again.

Not with an oncologist. The couple of times I have tried it has not been a problem 30 mins and 1 hour respectively with my normal racing bike saddle
