I think the amount of gentian violet and the length of time you'd have to use it to worry about cancer are so extreme that it is a risk not worth worrying about. Kinda like - if you drank 600 diet sodas with saccharine a day, you might have to worry about bladder cancer.

The only things that worked on my ductal yeast were gentian violet and about 4 weeks of Diflucan. If I got yeast again, I would do GV again in a heartbeat. (And I eat organic, don't vax, etc. and so forth).

Great info on GV in general:
