Hi. No it cannot cause cancer. Go for cavity fillings or root canal if required. But get treated for cavities. They don't cause cancer . But, they can cause infection. Regards

Not at all. Cavities in tooth can only cause pain if long standing but no cancer. Cavities can be simply filled with restorative material. Don't go for extraction bcoz of cavities in tooth.

Present small cavities can be filled and decay progression can be prevented .Cavities do not cause cancer. To prevent new cavities from happening kindly maintain good oral hygiene by brushing twice daily and flossing regularly .
