If plain sterile water is given inter-muscularly in the buttocks, will it result in the future position of cell cancer? Also please sum up other issues related.

I have injected sterile water for buttocks lifting for cosmetic purposes myself. I have taken 20 or 25 ml in span of 2 years, and it is extremely painful while injecting. Now I am in great fear of it as I know the process explodes red blood cells. I have never felt sick or anything serious, but still I want to know if there are any serious issues.

According to well known research, sterile water is not a cancer causing agent even if it is being administered intramuscularly via injection. However, I am sure that using water for this type of cosmetic purpose is not advised by many, many licensed health professionals. 

I suggest you read the book One Renegade Cell, by RA Weinberg of the Whitehead Institute at MIT, an excellent book for the lay person wanting to know more about the etiology of cancers, specifically how it starts, how it develops and how scientists are working so hard to understand the process better in order to stop it.
