Statins are cholesterol lowering drugs. In a recent study involving 133,255 participants no positive correlation was found between long term statin use and any of the ten most common types of cancer.  Nor was one found in association with overall cancer incidence. 

Using cholesterol-lowering drugs for five years or longer was not associated with overall cancer incidence, or incidence of bladder, breast, colorectal, lung, pancreatic, prostate, or renal cell cancer, but was associated with lower risk of melanoma, endometrial cancer and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

The findings were presented in the 9th Annual AACR Frontier in Cancer Prevention Research Conference held Nov. 7-10, 2010 in Philadelphia.
