No. This is probably a case of submucus fibrosis. Avoid chewing pan masala/Gurkha. Do mouth opening exercises. Take antioxidants and drink plenty of water.

Is it from beginning or has it decreased now? Any Supari, tobacco or alcohol habits? If yes, please show a head and neck surgeon or a surgical oncologist. It may be due to submucous fibrosis (premalignant condition) or trismus, which might be a sign of cancer.
