You should avoid charcoal based meats.

This is from the cancer society: Heterocyclic amines (HCAs) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are chemicals formed when muscle meat, including beef, pork, fish, or poultry, is cooked using high-temperature methods, such as pan frying or grilling directly over an open flame. In laboratory experiments, HCAs and PAHs have been found to be mutagenic—that is, they cause changes in DNA that may increase the risk of cancer. In many experiments, rodents fed a diet supplemented with HCAs developed tumors of the breast, colon, liver, skin, lung, prostate, and other organs. Rodents fed PAHs also developed cancers, including leukemia and tumors of the gastrointestinal tract and lungs

You should also avoid processed meats such as lunch meats as they are also known to cause cancer.

Dear Dr. Scott, thank you for your response. But if you cannot pan-fry or grill meat, what is the recommended form of preparation?

I understand your concern.

The general recommendation is to grill or bake them in the oven.

Cooking on the stove top oven on low heat is also recommended.

You can also cook them in a crock pot.

Protecting the meat with tin foil or similar product can also help if you do decide to grill them over an open flame.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
