What are the odds of getting oral cancer if you've only did chewing tobacco a number of times?

In brief: Very low
The odds of getting oral cancer from smokeless tobacco use only a few times is very low.
Please discontinue all tobacco use. Also go for regular checkups every 6 months for your oral cancer screening.

In brief: Depends
Oral cancer from chewing tobacco is obviously a concern.
The number of times you chewed tobacco and your risk of getting oral cancer may also be dependent upon the type of tobacco you chew, the location (if you keep it in the same location), as well as how long you chewed it each time.
