Cancer therapy and radiotherapy guide to many oral structures disorders consisting of: Harmful feeling, nutrient deficiency due to inability to eat, which increased the infection consequences. The performing study tended to point the protozoa’s frequents Entamoeb gingivalis (E. givg.) and Trichomma Tenax (T.ten.)  In patients associated with various oral and maxilla facial pathogeneses regions with or without cancer therapy or radiotherapy, and their correlations with the sex, age of those patients and individuals and how to early control upon these parasitic consequences infections in such patients have these disorders.

All samples were held in sterile slides with normal saliva taken to the laboratory of the same hospitals in order to examine and seen under light microscope. Statistically the various clinical cases of oral problems are displayed in this study highly significant in correlation between oral disorders and the frequency of parasites, Improving patients awareness of importance of dental and oral hygiene health before, during and after cancer therapeutic treatment, achieved by making proper oral hygiene instructions programs and minimized the oral disorders complications and their consequence.
