sir,i am male 18 years. i have been engaged in eating guthka and smoking for about 3years. in my buccal mucosa i have got some sort of thickening in my cheek with some thick nerves on it. also below my tongue i have got very tiny 4-5 blisters(not of water type). i have consulted to a doctor and he says that you have to stop engaging in tobacco activities.he said that your mouth has got some sort of trpsis and it may lead to osmf. till now when i eat something spicy i do not feel any irritation or burning sensation but when i try to open my mouth, i am unable to extend my mouth competely due to the thickening in my cheeks....is it dangerous? what should i do ? can it be cured or any natural treatment for eliminating the addiction to tobacco? i am so worried and i cannot tell my parents for the same ........plz suggest

  • You have white lesions due to consumption of gutka and smoking. This is pre cancerous condition and it can develop into cancer if you donot stop these habbits immediately. These will go with time if you stop taking gutka and smoking altogether. If you are very much concerned then you can go for biopsy of the lesion which will clear every thing. For more on effects of gutka on mouth you can read the following article from our website.. http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-smokeless-tobacco-78.aspx
