cheek biting due to anxiety-can it cause cancer?

im almost 22,male...my question is that i have extreme anxiety and depression,and unconsciously i used to bite the inside of my cheeks all the time,i quit an year ago after my anxiety calmed down,i dont know if i still do it while sleeping....one of my friends said that it can cause cancer,im very scared,their are two white lines on each of my cheeks,the place where i used to bite both my cheeks,i saw a dentist,he said nothing was wrong,but is my friend right,because what if i unintentionally do it while sleeping,very confused and scared...

Cheek biting is highly unlikely to cause cancer.
