Burning sensation on tongue, in throat. Taking antacid for peptic ulcers, chewing tobacco. Cure for symptoms?

Hello doctor,I am vegetarian. I don t take spicy foods, also not much of oily items. But I have been using chewable tobacco products only twice in a week but I never swallowed. I am having this habit for the past 5 years. Now I have stopped it but to quit need some time. How ever now a days I am feeling a kind of burning sensation in tongue and throat . Is that a sign of Cancer? Note: I had peptic ulcer problem earlier and even now If I take spicy food I need take antacid to avoid problems. I don t smoke at all and take beer very rarely

thanks for your query
History seems that it could be due to oral submucus fibrosis(OSMF) or any Leukoplakic patch in oral cavity.
This is due to tobacco use. Quit tobacco as early as possible.
This condition of OSMF is reversible upto certain extent but if not treated in time may cause erythroplakia, carcinoma in situ and so on.
just take preventive measures like stop tobacco, spicy and hot foods, alcohol.
Take mucosal soothening agents like tab Rebagen, Do sucrafil gargles, it forms coating on irritable mucosa and fasten healing.
Take multivitamines also.
Thanks. take care
