Dear All,
There is a requirement from my client that bind the tomcat on port 80 at one of the account of the cpanel. I have searched on the internet that mod_proxy module can do this. My question is that is mod_proxy is a security concer. If not then if i recompile to install the module will it effect the cpanel configuration. Please guide me.

I am not certain I understand the bind Tomcat on port 80 portion, since cPanel allows Tomcat to work on both port 8080 and port 80 for sites who have Tomcat installed via easyapache when the domain is setup in WHM > Install Servlets area.

Dear,
I have installed the tomcat 7 manually and now i want to bind tomcat 7 on one of the cpanel account. Is it possible. Because cpanel easyapache only support 5.5 as per my knowledge.

Yes, we only support Tomcat 5.5 currently. Knowing it happens to be Tomcat 7 would be good information to provide initially :)
