I'm not a doctor, so please take that into account... but from what I've read/heard, there is no conclusive evidence linking EBV to any types of cancer.  That's not to say there ISN'T a link, because there could be; but so far, there hasn't been any solid proof.  The main reason there hasn't been proof so far is that most people (about 90% of adults by age 30) have contracted EBV; this makes it very difficult to point to it as a cause of cancer, especially when not all of those 90% of people will get cancer.  I hope this makes sense (I'm not the best teacher either, sorry!).  Personally, I wouldn't worry (And I don't!) at all about EBV causing cancer.
