White lump in mouth

On Tuesday morning I noticed a white lump on the inside of my cheek on my right side. I had bit my cheeks by accident on Saturday and since then it was paining and on Tuesday I found a white lump on the area where I had bit my cheek. I am worried whether it'll be any cancerous tissue. Pls advice.

An acute injury like the one u have described cannot give cancer. It's more of keratinisation of the bit tissue.  Just show it to ur dentist and resolve.  If the teeth are very sharp then doing some rounding and smoothing of the edges works.  Feel free to consult Laser Smile Care Centre. God bless u.

Hi thru your history it looks mostly like traumatic keratosis or fibrosis & this condition of suffering is a common problem i.e cheek biting...but surely it won't be a cancerous tissue. Before confirming the treatment better visit dentist for clinical examination.

Most likely this will not be a cancerous growth...... going by the description that you have mentioned, it seems like traumatic keratosis or traumatic fibroma----none of which is going to be a very dangerous entity..... keratosis might fade away with time and fibroma might require removal at a later stage...... nonetheless, only wait and watch is recommended at this point, with application of anaesthetic ointments for symptomatic relief.... Regards....

Don't worry, until u have any other habits like tobacco chewing and alcohol consumption, bitting a cheek does not trigger cancer otherwise many ppl would have been suffering from it, as bitting cheek is quiet common while chewing. For pain you can apply commonly available gels in the market. Although you shouldn't neglect it get it clinically tested once before going for any treatment.
