Hi, I noticed a small raised white spot on my inner cheek right along my bite line, its beside my back tooth which was broken by a dentist in Feb while he was removing a lower back tooth and the tooth its beside is a bit rough now. I noticed the spot 2/3 weeks ago .. not getting better or worse ... 39, non smoker. Any info much appreciated!!

The most obvious cause could be a sharp edge on the lower molar that is rubbing on the soft tissue, causing keratosis or the white line/spot" as you see it.
I would go see a dentist, and first get the lower molar either smoothed or fixed and then give it another 10-14 days to see if there is any difference.
If the lesion doesn't disappear, I would then maybe consider a biopsy of the lesion to test for any abnormalities.

Thanks so much for your reply. Is it suspicious looking??
