Where in the mouth does oral cancer from chewing usually develop?

Oral cancer: Oral cancer usually develops in the place where you pocket the wad of tobacco. If you see or feel anything unusual in your mouth, please see an oral surgeon or ENT doctor immediately. Oral cancers are curable if detected early. And STOP CHEWING!!!! It's a nasty habit that causes cancer, bad breath, teeth loss, and datelessness!
