Yo no hablo español bien, pero intento..jaja! :)

To answer the question. Toxoplasmosis and cancer are not related. Toxoplasmosis is a type of infection that causes inflammation of the eye.

Toxoplasmosis y el cáncer no están relacionados. La toxoplasmosis es un tipo de infección que causa la inflamación del ojo.
(I don't know the spanish word for toxoplasmosis)

In fact  I was expecting that answer cause I know its a disease caused by a protozoary, habitually without complications except if you are pregnant.But I didnt know especifically about eyes cases - not that both things was probably to be linked,but...
People links cancer with everything...
Btw creo que toxoplasmosis es igualito en español ... (words from latin origem are similar- is toxoplasmose in Portuguese)
