In brief: No

Any thing is possible but location of a stroke does not typically lead to tumor. Stroke is where there is lack of blood supply to an area.
Rumors typically like to grow by increasing the blood supply to an area.

Hemorrhagic stroke is actually not a lack of blood--it is a bleeding that is causing the stroke. So the area is still subjected to metastatic cancer.

In brief: A possibility

Metastatic cancer--cancer that has spreaded to elsewhere from its original site.
Whereever there is blood, there is a possibility that tumor cell can be spread there and start to grow. Whether there an increased risk of cancer at the site of stroke is not known; as long as blood can get the area, the chance of metastatic cancer is there. Consult doc if you have concern. Have a good thanksgiving.
