hello, yellow teeth aren't connected to cancer. also, yellow teeth does not suggest weakness. teeth colour varies from person to person. you can consult a dentist and get it checked. if the teeth are yellow due to deposits, you can go for scaling(cleaning) and polishing. if not, then you can ask dentist for whitening methods.

Hi..every person has different shades of white. For some it looks yellow if it is dull white. It is a genetic prediction if other factors like fluoride, tetracycline  or habits are removed. No need to worry because it is only a cosmetic concern and they are not related to any cancer. You can visit dentist for teeth whitening or permanent solution like ceramic crowns or laminates based on your teeth condition

Regards

Obviously you need to consult your dentist regarding yellowish color of your teeth. If it is natural in color, well and good. But, if it is because of plaque, you need to get your teeth cleaned.  But,yellow color teeth is no way related to cancer.
Need not worry.
