The worry of getting cancer may be way to far and unreasonable. Think about it. Since being born, have you not been brushing your teeth with a plastic brush? Cannot we say that direct contact might have exposed you to some kind of BPA to your body? Not sure but just asking.

I worry about cleaning XPAP stuff, excessive cleaning kills, all those spill ducks died after cleaning them with Dawn, but some of them were delicious with a good wine. Jim

Decades later we are still washing their offspring with Dawn on T.V., and they still taste good.

Maturity is the ability to stick with a job until it's finished; the ability to do a job without being supervised; the ability to carry money without spending it; and the ability to bear an injustice without wanting to get even.

Can cpap cause cancer?
Old age is a common contributor to cancer--
Longer life is a common result of consistent cpap therapy.
This is the only way the statement is not completely insane.
The longer you live, the more chances cancer can get you.
Live with the odds, or crawl into a hole and die . . .

I once was lost in apnea; but now I'm found--breathing easily all night long.
