Scoliosis symptoms

Hello my name is Henoc Paulicin Jr, I am currently a junior in undergrad pursing a career in medicine. However this question has nothing to with me. I have a friend who has scoliosis she went to a chiropractor who told her that she will die early because scoliosis causes cancer. I know i'm new to the bio world and have a lot to learn but this is something i've never heard of! i want to know if you can one tell me if thats true and if it is why

Get a second opinion from a general doctor and not a chiropractor they do not know the details of the disorder as the general doctor would, so she needs another opinion.
