In brief: NO

Kidney stone formation is often diet related with uric acid and calcium as the primary components.
Herpes zoster that causes shingles is a virus and is not a predisposition to cancer. As we progress through "life" ailments are a requiste for "passage" for stones and life. See a md regularly so that life for you will not be a "four letter word.".
