Hey guys I'm worried because it feels as if I'm losing a lot of tissue under my tongue, around my teeth where the sides of my tongue sits and just all around that area. To help explain it better my tongue sits deeper in my mouth and usually when I close my lips and act like I'm trying to drink through a straw usually there's a lot more tissue that comes up but here lately I noticed there's barely any and feels like the floor of my mouth is disintegrating. I'm thinking it's not that serious of a problem but would like to note that I do smoke and dip on a daily basis. I'm not showing any signs of cancer but I know tobacco plays a big role in losing any oral tissue so I was wondering if anyone knows if this is permanent and unfixable even if I stop use altogether or if there's a way I can regain any of this tissue back?

Have you seen a Dentist for an exam? I can tell you that by the time Oral Cancer symptoms start to show, it will most likely be too late. Go to your Dentist for an exam.

I have been in the past month or two and showed no signs of cancer... Would it be just a major side effect to tobacco? I can't find any info on Google about my symptoms.. Maybe I'm just making a big deal out of something small...

I dont think that this is a sign of cancer but i will definitely suggest you to visit dentist for once and consult about issues you are facing.
