I have cavity in one tooth (upper jaw) and one lower tooth is broken (small potion remaining). Whether cavity can be filled up as I do not want to go for root canal treatment. How the broken tooth will be extracted?

Yes, only if root is involved, root canal will be done and if root is not involved, just filling is enough so, first you have a dentist consultation to get checked whether the root or pulp is involved or not.
Yes cavity can be filled and tooth will be extracted under la.
Yes you can go if you are not really interested in rct now but be prepared for rct in near future. Broken tooth could also be saved if you want. But if you insist to extract the dentist may want to see an xray report for the same. An xray is a vital tool for every dental treatment. So go for it and smile.
