Pain after RCT is common. But if the pain persists for a longer duration, kindly consult your dentist as there can be reinfection due to some reasons which your dentist will analyse and correct your condition

Hi..RCT can cause postop pain sometimes. But it should have been OK in 20 days. You must visit back your dentist. Regarding second part of your question. NO an RCT can not cause cancer. No distant association between the two..

After any root canal completion there can be mild discomfort.
Go back to your dentist and discuss with him about your problems. No need for specialist at this stage.
Take care

Hello Madam,

                         Root canal treatment does not cause cancer. The persistent pain could be due to many reasons, kindly take a X - Ray of your root canal treated tooth and get it assessed by your dentist or an Endodontist. Do not get mislead by internet solutions or suggestions of friends and don throw yourself into fear. Always seek professional help. Get rid of pain soon. Keep smiling.
