White patches inside cheeks, cold, running nose, sore throat. Treatment?

I have white patches/spots in the inside of my cheek. They dont hurt, but I dont recall seeing them before. Just because I havent noticed it before doesnt mean that it hasnt always been there. I do also (as an added possible cause) have a little cold , runny nose , sore throat , etc. What are these spots? Are they normal?

i read your problem .i need to know about your oral habits
like smoking,drinking,tobacco chewing etc.
these white spots can be white precancerous lesions
like leukoplakia but these are mostly found in smokers
malnutritous or these can be simple ulcers will heal
itself in 5-6days.
i would advice you keep a check on it for a week if
it remains same consult an oral pathologist and get
a biopsy done.
have high nutritous diet,maintain good oral hygiene
avoid hot and spicy food.
