Recovering from flu and fever. Started sweating at night. Is this cancer related?

I had recently had a fever and now have the flu but I am slowly recovering from it. And week, recently I go to sleep and I ll wake up in the middle of the night and only my neck is soaking wet all around, this has happened for two nights now. If you could tell me what the problem is, that would be lovely. I did some research and I just really hope it isn t cancer related.
