    Can you provide more context? Or a link to where it was found? As it stands, it doesn't really seem to me to have much meaning. It could be a poorly written sentence (or joke) by someone who does not know English very well. – Em. Jul 11 '16 at 9:58
  • It is just a comment for my posted joke ! – David Jaw Hpan Jul 11 '16 at 10:06

I think you are referring to the meme: "X gave Y cancer"

RELATED: That Post Gave Me Cancer

is an image macro series commonly used in response to nonsensical or insubstantial posts submitted by the original poster (OP) or other users in a given thread. This hyperbolic expression implies that the content in question was so far below one’s expectation that it infected the reader with “cancer”, a slang term that is typically used to express one’s disgust towards a trend or a thread.

I've seen the "X gave Y cancer" meme used to provide ridicule, sarcasm, or sometimes just fun/comical effect.

    I'm glad somebody answered this. The original question made zero sense to me, and I haven't seen this meme. (I'm glad I haven't seen it). – Colin Fine Jul 11 '16 at 12:04
  • @ColinFine Different circles tend to use different memes. Reddit's /r/AdviceAnimals has a pretty different set than 4chan. – Harris Jul 11 '16 at 19:36
  • +10 If OP confirms this. This did not occur to me at all. It really makes sense. – Em. Jul 11 '16 at 23:41
