Causes of Cancer
People who have problems with their immune systems are more likely to get some forms of cancer.  This group includes people who
    * Have had organ transplants and take drugs to suppress their immune systems to stop organ rejection   
    * Have AIDS   
    * Are born with rare medical syndromes which affect their immunity

The kinds of extra cancers that affect these groups of people fall into two, overlapping groups
    * Cancers that are caused by viruses, such as cervical cancer or some lymphomas    
    * Lymphomas
Chronic infections or transplanted organs can continually stimulate cells to divide.  This continual cell division means that immune cells are more likely to acquire mutations and develop into lymphomas.
