11 doctors agree
In brief: Sadly, but yes
Unfortunately patients and family members of cvid patients have an unusually high incidence of IgA deficiency, autoimmune diseases, autoantibodies, and malignancy.
Our body has its own surveillance system that destroys cancer cells. With an immune deficiency these cells are much less in number and less effective.

In brief: Yes
Particularly blood cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma.
Cvid subjects are also at higher risk for developing autoimmunity.
