Lung abscess

My 17 years old sister was hospitalized with a lung abscess in her right lung. Abscess has caused necrotic tissue around the abscess as well as a collapsed lung. She was placed on 10 rounds of antibiotics with all tests giving no results of any " bug"  type cause. What are the chances of cancer? She is healthy, non-smoker, non-drinker and has never touched any drugs.

Unfortunately, this is possible and I strongly suggest that she has blood tests done.
