No abbreviations!: Abbreviations are open to misinterpretation. So you have to spell out what is OCD because it might have more than one meaning. is it obsessive compulsive disorder that you are asking about?
No it has no association with Cancer. But do tell us if your meaning for OCD is same or different than mine!
