?Leukoplakia?: These patches are abnormal and are likely caused by smoking or chewing tobacco. Your doctor should have explained to you what it all means. These areas of your mouth should be rechecked regularly by your Dentist or by a oral surgeon to make sure that it does not change into oral cancer. Tell us if you smoke or drink alcohol or both???
