The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either history of chewing tobacco use or chewing tobacco use, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as:
Leukoplakia

Chewing tobacco and snuff play a key role in the development of leukoplakia: Up to 75% of regular users of "smokeless tobacco" products eventually develop leukoplakia where they hold the tobacco against their cheeks.

Mouth Cancer

Chewing tobacco is known to cause cancer of the mouth.
