Whether biting and chewing the side of your mouth can lead to cancer, I hope others will give their input. However, I can see where it might lead to infection (depending how deep). Still, I believe you should be asking yourself why you are biting, tearing, and chewing perfectly good mouth tissue that is there to serve a purpose. It may be just a bad habit, or maybe something that goes deeper. You should consult a health care professional for advice. Anyway you look at it, pulling apart your skin is not a good idea. I'm not saying this to be funny, but out of concern for you.
