Sir, on the inner side of both the cheeks fibrosis exists. White patch can be seen. Sometime small blisters grow over it and then automatically subsides when I take rinifol medicine. What treatment should I take to get rid of fibrosis? Can fibrosis be converted into cancer? If yes then how can I come to know?

You must be chewing tobacco or might be smoking. You need to stop chewing tobacco or smoking. Yes fibrosis can be converted into cancer. You need to get tests done for diagnosis of cancer.
