In brief: Immunosuppression

If treatment of cancer has caused immunosuppression, you could be more susceptible to listeria infection and its complications.

In brief: Unlikely

Listeria infections are unusual.
If you have cancer and have very low blood counts (specifically, leukopenia) ask your doctor for a list of foods and situations you should avoid. Adhering to this list will decrease your risk of infections, including listeria.
