Hello,
So a little background I used to chew snuff years ago and used to smoke don’t do either now. Will occasionally drink that’s about all. I find the inside of my cheeks have almost a white film concerned it may be leuokoplakia.I also sleep on both sides of my face cheek down if that helps... also that little bump I had checked out last year and it is a benign scar tissue from biting down . last had a dentist appointment exactly a year ago.... going in this week would just like some opinions.

Leukoplakia is not a diagnosis in itself because it just means "white patches. Possibilities:
  1. Trauma - as in cheek rubbing/biting.
  2. Lichen planus. Doesn't look like it.
  3. Mouthwashes/ toothpastes sometimes are irritating.
