Toradol is a strong aspirin like drug. These are not associated with cancer risks. They are associated with not being able to prevent bleeding or causing bleeding or worsening bleeding. If there is ACTIVE cancer that is causing bleeding, this would be bad and otherwise there is some risk of causing stomach bleeding but this is not necessarily increased/influenced by previous cancer and treatment
