Is cheek biting a cancer risk?

Theoretically Yes

Head-cheek
The odds of that happening are very low, but it is possible. If you continue with this habit, at the very least, have your mouth checked one a year by a dentist.

What are ways to stop cheek biting?

Dental block

Head-cheek
Your dentist may be able to help you. Similar to folks who grind their teeth at night, a dental block may help alleviate your cheek chewing. Also, sometimes stress level reduction can help decrease nighttime gnawing.

Cheek biting effect inside of mouth?

Scarring

Head-cheek
Chronic cheek biting will lead to a callous or scar effect on the cheek. It may feel like a little soft lump and may have a whitish discoloration. It has no permanent dysfunction that I am aware of.

How can I stop lip and cheek biting?

Sounds Like

Head-cheek
a habit that you have formed and like nail biting most likely is an unconscious habit. You will need to be patient to change this behavior. This will take 6 wks and you will have to be diligent and pay attention to the times and conditions that cause you to bite lips/cheeks. Changing those conditions,being aware will work. If not see your MD/behavioral psychologist.
