In brief: Not a cancer risk

Anyone can do a bad study to "show" that anything causes any cancer, just based on how people answer questions.
The things that actually do this and hold up either mutate genes (which lasering a follicle won't do) or result in prolonged hyperproliferation of cells (same). Don't worry about this. Laser hair removal is a huge help for many people. Best wishes.
