Brief Answer:
No it's not like that.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, dear
Her high ESR is due to anemia most likely.

In cancer ESR is very high. Your ESR is only slightly high so by only ESR no one can say it is cancer.

But she should investigate for blood loss.It may be due to some other reason.

Thanks for using health care magic.
Wish you a very good health
