Confirm me... Oral Cancer in a 20 year old

Yeah i've been smoking since i was 13, and drinking. (and smoking weed) Not too great of oral hygiene either. I'm turning 21 this year, and i'm always having problems with my mouth. What are the chances of me already having, or getting it before i even hit 30?

Hi.. Tobacco in any form can lead to oral cancer, the chances are higher if you also have the habit of chewing tobacco.. The chances of you getting the cancer however cannot be predicted.. But I can say this, almost 75% people who have been diagnosed to have oral cancers have been using tobacco and alcohol.. Hence it is better to quit now before it is too late...
