Common boils are not linked to cancer. However, there are condition that cause boils that can be equally concerning. If it occurs frequently in many parts of the body then you need to see a doctor. If it doesn't resolve, then you need to see a doctor. If it happens and you know why it happens, like you did alot of hiking, or like to touch open flames... then stop doing that...

absolutely not, these cancer cells can attack both men and women I don't know the answer to the question, but the previous answer, "absolutely not, these cancer cells can attack both men and women" does not answer it. Sex-linked traits/genes can appear in both men and women.
