No: Huntington's disease is a slowly progressive degenerative disorder of the nervous system that spans many years. During that time patients may suffer strokes or heart attacks or develop cancer. These disorders are not related to the underlying huntington's disease.

No: Stroke & cancer are in no way related to huntington's disease, rest assured. They are all completely separate, unrelated conditions. Best of luck, rmh :).
