Hi doc there are these two lumps in my month on my cheeks both parallel to each other and 2 white patches as well I can feel them with my tongue a little rougher than the rest of my cheek It's been a week and it's still the same just a little faded I had some has a day before and I used to smoke so i'm scared if that's because of it I tried to google it. It says it could be an early stage of cancer i'm scared.

Hello, White patches could be leukoplakia, which is a premalignant condition. I would advise you to get a biopsy done to confirm the diagnosis. Lumps need to be examined by a dermatologist. Further management depends on the histopathology report. As of now, please stop smoking, it causes cancer and also predisposes you to various other diseases and is one of the factors causing infertility. Eat healthy, be healthy.
