Any type of cancer is never infective and it cannot spread to any other person.Only there are chances of spreading of secondary infection to care taking person and surely not the cancer.Means if that person is suffering from rhinites than care taker can suffer from rhinites and not cancer.
Hope this clears your doubt,
