Hi , in my opinion you are having oral submucous fibrosis, where in you have white, pale, numb patches in mucosa of cheeks.
Treatment is oral steroids with anti oxidant for 3 months with steroid injection into the lesion.
Stop eating tobacco if you are habituated to it. Avoid eating spicy and hot food.
