Hard to say: Pain in the muscles or bones during humid weather is sometimes reported by people with various forms of arthritis, including the very common osteoarthritis (degenerative arthritis of aging). Sometimes people with an old wound or healed fracture will complain of increased aching during humid weather. I've not seen that it can be a symptom of cancer.

It depends/nore info: More info. Is likely needed to be sure of what this is. It may be that the humidity is doing this, that you may be sensitive to it, and that you need to replenish fluids. Second, sleeping on the sofa may cause muscle cramps, and that you might need to sleep more on a firm bed. Finally, this cramping can be a sign of circulation problems, especially if you are older. Cancer seems unlikely.
