    No, infection has no relation to cancer. Ask a doctor.

    There is some evidence that HSV2 oral infection can lead to an increased risk of throat cancer.

    Smoking is also a major risk factor as is alcohol.

    Most oral infections are unrelated to cancer risk.

    For a mild infection, try gargling in warm salt water.

    For a severe infection, see a dentist or doctor, depending on the exact location.

    Antibiotics from a Dentist, and no it won't turn to cancer.
