I think this u need homoeopathic treatment for permanent solution of ur problem...maintain ur oral hygiene.brush atlst twice night brush with baking soda and rinse ur mouth with lemon water...this along with homoeopathic treatment will be beneficial fr u.
The black lesions could be something called melanoplakia. They per se won't cause cancer. However it has been shown that a compound in pan masala called arecholine can cause cancer. Almost 9/10 patients who consume pan masala, tobacco, gutkha will develop cancer sooner or later. So if you stop the habit and take the present medication, things should be fine
