Sugar is a simple carbohydrate and causes the pancreas to make insulin. If your pancreas's function has been affected by the cancer, you may have a harder time digesting sweets. It may cause you to have stomach pains. But, everybody is different and you need to decide for yourself what you want and what you can tolerate physically. I have read that cancer grows better with sugar, and different types of cancer grow differently with different environments. However, I am not a doctor or a scientist. You may decide that your enjoyment of that sweet roll is worth it, and you may not feel any affects of eating it whatsoever. If you really want the sweet roll, then maybe eat them in moderation, and if you feel uncomfortable or it's too much of a challenge to your digestive system, stop eating them or limit the quantity further. But, as I said, it's really a personal decision, and only you can gauge the quality of life that you want.
