In brief: Cancer and emotions

The simple answer to your question is "no" but in a more wholistic sense, cancers have many contributing factors, including genetics, environmental exposures, immune status, and so forth.
There is evidence that emotional status is linked to immune status or susceptibility, so there may be a weak link to emotional health.
