Hi, your friend suffers from a Pre-Malignant condition called as Oral Sub-Mucous Fibrosis. The cause for this condition is Chronic eating of Supari with Ghukta/tobacco in heavy quantity.
Cure for this condition is there, but first and foremost the Habit of eating Supari in any form must be stopped.
As the condition is in late stage medicines won't work.
To some extent Injections are to be given an tried for mouth opening if not then Surgical mouth opening is the only option left.
Ask your friend to consult a Dental clinic nearby or any Oral Surgeon for better understanding of the disease. Thank you.
