Brief Answer:
Not related to the cancer.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
The itching all over the body can be related to allergic cause or deranged liver enzymes. She can apply calamine lotion or coconut oil and start with cetrizine tablet and see if it helps. iN case the itching continues then a blood test is needed to find out any hepatic abnormality.
The pain in thighs can be a muscular pain. Regular exercise mild pain killers and increasing the fluid intake with proper calcium and vitamin D3 supplements will help her in getting rid of such pains.
I hope this answers your query.
