Very Scared - Worried I have oral cancer

A few days ago I hit my mouth and ended up biting my tongue/cheek/etc.  I was checking it out in the mirror and starting to look at my gums.  I have no idea if this is how they always look or if anything has changed.

History: I have used smokeless tobacco.  Any advice would be helpful, I will try to make an appointment, but I don't have any health insurance.

Can't sleep at night since I thought about this.
