In brief: Not directly

Per reported studies, it can cause allergies but does not directly cause cancer.
However, some additives used with neoprene may sensitize skin and others are toxic to blood and kidneys.

In brief: Neoprene

Part of the chemicals used to make neoprene are considered to be carcinogenic (cancer causing).
So is sweet & low in large enough amounts. The actual exposure to a person is low but it is a theoretical risk.
