No: Salmonella is an infection, not related to developing cancer. Some viruses are known to have these associations, epstein barr causes mononucleosis in younger people, and can be associated with developing lymphoma later in life. Usually salmonella is associated with eating contaminated food-usually raw or undercooked meat.
