Hi, many thanks for the query!
Yes, these spots will regress on their own once you have stopped consuming tobacco (in any form) completely.
You can do biopsy of the lesion to know the exact histopathological diagnosis.
Treatment can be decided accordingly.
Take Vit. B-complex capsules for 15 days with your doctor's opinion.
Wish you a good health.
Take care.

It seems that you might be having sub mucous fibrosis in your inner buccal mucosa.
This is due to long habit of tobacco chewing.
As it is rough to touch it is better to consult oral surgeon to rule out Leucopakia.
It is better you left chewing tobacco.
Ok and take care.
