I have cavity since 4 Months. So, is it possible to have a cancer from this cavity? Am I eligible for Root Canal Treatment after 4 months of symptoms found? Please do give some treatment advice.

Yes you are definitely eligible and don't worry the cavity won't cause cancer.

It won't lead to cancer. Don't worry As far as having root canal treatment is done then if you have pain then kindly get an X-ray done of the tooth having cavity may be you will have to get root canal treatment done followed by a crown/cap. Otherwise get the caries removed and get the cavity filled with a tooth coloured restoration. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.
Hi Lybrate user, Cavity in tooth is decay in tooth. If you r having no symptoms of cold, hot or pain it can be filled with compatible material and saved. No need for root canal treatment.
Hello. You need to first visit a dentist to get your x-ray done for the area of concern. A proper diagnosis is a mirror for a proper prognosis. Once the x-ray is taken, only then the dentist can guide you for a proper treatment plan whether the cavity can be treated with a simple aesthetic filling or root canal treatment. Because as long as the cavity is asymptomatic the chances of root canal are pretty less. But the cavity definitely needs to be attended with a proper sealant in order to curb the further decay.
Get your tooth root canal treated soon it will not changed to a cancerous condition followed by a cap over that tooth so that you can able to chew from there. Do not worry you'll be fine.
You can not have cancer from cavity but u can go for root canal treatment
There’s no correlation between tooth cavity and cancer. Tooth cavity can easily be managed by filling; if the decay has infected the nerve (pulp) then Root Canal Treatment is the next line of treatment.
