First off: stop chewing. One of the worse habits that someone can do to themselves. White lesions associated with "dipping" is the first sign of cellular change which means cells are in a dysplastic stage meaning possible beginning stages of cancer. Of all cancers; oral cancer is the most debilitating due to the surgery needed to remove. Jeffrey r. Briney, d.D.S.
