Would biting the dead skin off of my lips really cause cancer?

Would biting the dead skin off of my lips really cause cancer?

Theoretically it may: Any repeated trauma can be associated with cancer. Any time the body has to make new cells, there is the chance that it will make a mistake in copying the dna, which in turn could lead to cancer. Lip cancer is much more commonly associated with repeated sunburns, though. So if you are worried about cancer, use a sunscreen chapstick. ...Read more

I had a cut on my lip and i was putting peroxide on it but i learned that kills new skin cells. I'm now using Mederma for the scar but it doesn't look like it's going to heal the scar. Any other suggestions or is the tissue too dead from the peroxide?

Massage!: Don't beat yourself up too much about the hydrogen peroxide. It does slow healing of wounds, but lips heal so quickly, i doubt you did any harm. Scar massage takes time to work (2-3 months) and it cannot completely erase the scar. It will smooth and soften the scar and improve the color over time. Good luck! ...Read more

Is it possible that your lip skin die after testin snus.ihave tried snus once and next morning there was this dead white/yellow skin at my lip  ithurt?

Snus or snuff: like tobacco is an irritant to the body and you can get a sloughing of the mucous membrane when trying it for the first few times...and over time it can burn the gum tissue enough that the gums recess and the roots of the teeth are exposed. This can lead to tooth loss and sensitivity and decay as well as a black stain that is difficult to remove. Not a good idea to continue . ...Read more
