    Which is what the first article you posted focused on. Right before that sentence though it says

    We also performed a case-only survival analysis to examine post-diagnostic consumption of these foods and risk of lethal prostate cancer among the 3,127 men initially diagnosed with non-metastatic prostate cancer during follow-up. In the incidence analysis, we observed 199 events during 306,715 person-years
    And this doesnt really strike me as something that would indicate a strong relationship between eggs and cancer
