Good morning, I'm a 39 years old male non-smoker and a moderate drinker.
Since beginning of November, a red lesionhas appeared on the dorsum of my tongue.
The aspect and the colour of this lesion changes during the day, a light pink in the morning, red in the evening, while size and location are always the sime ( 1 cm x 0,5 cm, left side of dorsum).
A biopsy of the lesion has been done, this is the result:
"Epithelial hyperplasia and hyperkeratosis without dysplasia, mild lympho plasmatic inflammatory infiltrate of the superficial area".

In your opinion, can this biopsy's results exclude any possibilities of malignant/pre-malignant lesion (erythroplakia)?
