White lines inside cheek
26 Male. I am a smoker for the last 5 years. Smokes 5-6 cigarettes daily. I see white lines in my inside cheek for the last 1 year or so. Slightly thick and become smaller at times. They taste bitter when touched with tongue. No pain.I often feel food tasteless. Any chances of anything serious? Or just fungous?
