No idea..

I dont sleep much too, so im worried now
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

Um no I havent seen or heard any evidence to support that. Lack of sleep will not lead to cancer.

EDIT:

Lack of sleep affects mood, concentration and mobility. Serious lack or no sleep for very long periods of time affect heart rhythm and metabolic function which can lead to death, but no cancer.

Cancer is caused by the failure of the cell to undergo autolysis. (I think that is the word). Basically the cell does not die but keeps reproducing. It then grows capilleries and draws a lot of blood as it forms a tumor.

Cancer is caused by any agent able to prevent autolysis, any agent that is a free radical and can damaged the necessary genes on DNA molecules that tell the cell to self destruct.

no, your body is just more vulnerable to sickness(colds, etc.) when you lose a lot of sleep
When all else fails, ask the pit.

Are you that gullible? Besides, a lot of people have cancer dormant within their bodies and it's just waiting for a trigger. Cancer survival rates today are very high, so don't worry too much. Still, lack of sleep causing cancer is quite a stretch, I wouldn't go that far.

It's a shame scientists can't pin-point some of the main causes of cancer (besides smoking) so we don't have to be subjected to these colourful theories about everyday foods.

the stress caused by your worrying about it is probably more dangerous than the lack of sleep itself...

Lack of sleep can cause some mental situations (not severe though) but scientists havent figured out exactly the sideeffects of it.
The same thing goes with the abuse of sleep..

Cancer is most likely to appear to weak organisms and it can also pass genetically.
Cancer is just abnormal cells which produce rapidly creating something like a bubble.. Cancer itself doesnt cause pain, the bubble does, by pressuring and squeezzing the nerves in the organs..

cortisol works better when the body is at rest and for those of you who don't know cortisol is the substance in your body that fights against colds and anything that is not supposed to be in your body, that's why you are always told to get rest when you are sick. If you have lack of sleep it can almost accelerate cancer that already exists in your body but I don't believe not having enough sleep can give you cancer. You will just be really tired and eventually have one time where you will sleep for many hours regaining all your lost sleep. Those are the best sleeps in the world IMO, or the ones after a hard day's work

the way i "toned" what i said doesn't mean i'm downplaying cancer in any way..but sleep will not CAUSE cancer.

I don't really know, but im assuming that the lack of sleep wears down your immune system making you more vunerable to sickness, but cancer? i'm not sure...

If you read the Daily Mail, youd know that asylum seekers cause cancer.

lack of sleep won't cause cancer as far as I know... don't worry for such a small thing, there's much more scary stuff out there fairyboy . However lack of sleep is bad in other aspects..
