Doc it seems to be tobacco pouch ketatosis.Tobbaco chewing,sharp metal crown or even sharp toith in contact in this can lead to keratosis.Please look for any sharp frictional contact.Do motivate and advise him to discontinue the habit.U can advise tab Oxitard from himalaya 1od for 2 weeks.Hexigel/betadine oinment might help.Recall afte 2 weeks ,if still persists..biopsy needs to be condidered.Hope it help.

Leukoedema seems to be the diagnosis. When stretched if the lesion disappears it is confirmatory. History agrees with the diagnosis. So does the location. Thank you.

Immediately to quit the habit... follow up to be done..in case of increased in size of lesion more than 6 weeks biopsy to be done.
