In brief: Yes
Celiac disease, especially if one has symptoms or small intestine inflammation/damage, does increase one's risk of small intestine cancer (adenocarcinoma, lymphoma).
The increased risk may go to normal if one stays on a completely gluten free diet and stops having intestinal symptoms for many years. Celiac disease is not a risk factor for stomach cancer, according to the american cancer society.
