Can using nicoderm (nicotine patch) patches cause cancer?

In brief: No canceer

nicoderm (nicotine patch) patches are used to wean off nicotine.
This has nothing to do with the nicotine in cigarrete smoking when the fumes from smoking can induce malignant transformation secondary to carcinogens in the tobacco which when burnt and inhaled can cause problems.
