Don't worry you will be fine if you stop habbit. Chances to transform in to carcinoma depending upon from how long you have such habbit, how many time in a day you had taken Supari smoking & alcohol continue SM fibro till you have four finger mouth opening. Take multi vitamin and Anti oxident, and don't worry be happy regards.

You would need some follow up with your every 6 months to check whether the intensity of osmf is under control or not .this will take lot of time not an immediate treatment.
If you have stopped tobacco and other irritants then you would be able to delay the disease progression. Regular check up is must along with medication you are taking.
Hi, don't worry. The disease progression will be delayed if you stop the habits. Follow up with your dentist every 6 months.
We cannot sure anything who will get cancer even after quitting. Stop smoking, tobacco chewing, drinking and regular checkups wit oncologist so tat if any chance of getting cancer can be detected early.
