I have tuberculosis am I more likely to get a lung infection caused by candida?

No. Although candida can be found in the sputum it can be considered a contaminant except in certain situations such as immunosuppresion (cancer, HIV etc) if a person with tuberculosis has a candida infection the above must be ruled out particularly hiv. Otherwise the answer is no.
No. Tuberculosis is a bacterial infection that individuals with a normal immune system can catch from anyone coughing the bacteria into the air. Candida lung infection is a fungal infection that happens more often when the immune system is suppressed by a disease or a medication. If you have TB because of immune suppression then it is possible to get a candida infection but it is rare in any case.

I have cancer am I more likely to get a lung infection caused by candida?

Probably not. True lung infections caused by candida are almost unheard of. People with severely suppressed bone marrow function can get systemic candida infections, but most such people are hospitalized in bone marrow or other organ transplant units or similarly immunosuppressed (but rarely cancer patients receiving outpatient chemo for example). "candida pneumonia" is almost unheard of. Read more...
Cancer itself. Does not pre-dispose to opportunistic infections like candida, but treatment can lower host defenses, include steroids, and these may increase risk. Awareness and early diagnosis is the key, not prophylactic treatment. Read more...

No. Candida pneumonitis is very rare in people with asthma. Viral and bacterial infections are much more likely in a child with asthma. Read more...
No. Candida tends to cause systemic infections only in those who are immunosuppressed so as those patients on chemotherapy or those patients with primary or secondary immune defiency such as HIV or scid. Read more...

My child as cystic fibrosis, how likely will he get a lung infection caused by candida?

Somewhat. The main risk for candida in patients with cystic fibrosis are for those patients who take inhaled drugs (such as combined therapies - advair, symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) & Dulera or monotherapies such as asthmanex, qvar, flovent). The inhaled steroids decrease bacterial counts in the mouth and increase the risk of fungal/candidal overgrowth resulting in thrush. Read more...
Possible. Depending on your child's lung function and airway clearance compliance, the chances vary somewhat. Candidiasis is rare in pre-adult sputum culture data sent on the CF foundation, except in children with very poor lung function tests who have already had multiple other infections. Read more...
Sometimes/immunity. Candida can be associated with colonization of the airway and mouth in cf. The fungus may live in the airway without actually causing an infection. If there are inhaled drugs or medications which affect local defenses, then the candida may result in an infection. A reference for your interest is: http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pubmed/21067323. With a lung transplantation, patients are more prone. Read more...

I received a organ transplant, what is the likelihood of me getting a lung infection caused by candida?

High. Most patients with organ transplant will experience candida (mainly oral thrush/candidiasis) at some point after transplant. The incidence of thrush seems highest if you have had a lung or heart transplant but all organ transplant recipients are at risk. For the most part the infection is treated with either topical oral rinses but occassionally oral medications are required to eradicate it. Read more...
Not likely. Possible, but not likely. Anyone taking immunosuppressive drugs is at greater risk for (opportunistic) infections compared to individuals in the general population. A very few % of organ transplant patients get fungal infections, and unless you have had fungal pneumonias in the past, it would be an unusual event. Read more...
