I am also a bit confused about the article. People do get cancer, and smoking or inhaling is often blamed for lung cancer, various foods and lifestyles with other cancers. One might expect HIV-infected individuals to be at risk, and I do not quite understand the “unrelated aspect.” Could not medicine stimulate cancer in individuals who have a propensity? Was relationship between HIV medications of different sorts corelated with cancer?

When we look at the top 10 causes of mortality in the USA then cancers make up 29% of the top ten causes of death. I'm not sure what we are to infoer about people living with HIV having a lower cancer mortality than the general population.

I think that percentage is well below the percentage of deaths due to cancer of all people (HIV-, HIV+). I'm not sure what this article to attempting to address.
