???: You need to give us more info but the answer would be: anybody can have cancer. Advise your friend to see a doctor if there is any concerning symptom but in the end is his/her choice.

By being there: Your are her friend -so being there to support and comfort and to listen to her is great. But also to listen for her when she meets the doctors - take notes and reiterate what they said afterwards- as she will forget or she will let her mind wander toward her kids, or husband eg. Ask questions for her that she discussed with you be careful with medical advise though- you are her friend.
