Ice does not cause cancer any more than water does.

A cancer treatment exists called ICE (ifosfamide, carboplatin, and etoposide), so in a way, ICE can cure cancer.

However, there have been studies showing that when you freeze, melt and refreeze water in a plastic water bottle too much, some element in the plastic gets in the water and that might cause cancer.
