In brief: No
There have been no studies to date(to my knowledge) that show this.
Interesting post though; i'll retap it to the rest of the tappers for their input.

In brief: No
If i understand your abbreviation correctly, cfs stands for chronic fatigue syndrome.
It is not a disease per se, but rather than a constellation of symptoms that typically have an underlying cause. Cancer may be one of them. There are many other non-cancer reasons. Cfs, in and of itself, doesn't cause or increase one's chance of cancer.
