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.

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.
