hi rakesh,
Due to repeated biting on the cheek there occurs this "linea alba" which is a very common finding. Now as in your case due to repeated biting it seems that some fibrosis has occured which you can feel as thickening. If its very small in size and almost constant in texture then there is no need to worry and this itching will subseqently subside if you are no longer in habit of biting. Till then you can start with frequent gargles with betadine after diluting it with water.

Hi,
Due to repeated biting for longer time there may be formation of mucous cyst which is pain less and produce no harm to your health.After some time it can burst open and you will be alright.If it remains,nothing to worry.
Second possibility is that, due to repeated biting on same site you may develop sub mucous fibrosis.

Hi I have a sore/bump in my mouth and am not sure if I should be worried. I have seasonal allergies and been very sick and my mouth began itching really bad. Then I noticed a bump in my mouth but under the skin inside my lip almost at the bottom. Next I noticed the bump is out and looks like its filled with a liquid and on the end there was a smaller bubble. I haven t been sexually active for over 3 months. Should I be worried?

I have been suffering from mouth ulcers from last two months. These ulcers start automatically any time day / night and become big (inside mouth any part, not on single place). I am not sure the reason about this, i taken some medicine suggested by my doctor, i visited to 5 doctor, ENT Specialist too, but nothing works, neither mouth paint, cleanothrush, Tees, etc. I am worried why these coming, even nowadays there is no problem of stool etc, i left smoking two months back and also not taking any other things (Alcohol, Tobacco etc). Please suggest what i need to do or to whom i need to consult, is it Oral CA, but i also found on internet Oral CA Ulcer come on side not every where.
