I'm going for a biopsy tomorrow for leukoplakia. Everything I read points to tobacco smoking, pipe smoking, and chewing tobacco as contributors to the advancement of leukoplakia, which also is associated with a low incidence of oral cancer. They say eliminating the tobacco products will help. Is marijuana also considered to be a contributor to leukoplakia?
