Hello Colleen –
Thank you for your response.
You ask, is the premalignant tissue a precursor to squamous cell carcinoma?
Yes. The dermatologist said the actinic keratosis was "very advanced" and could spread to the mouth in the form of squamous cell carcinoma, hence his recommendation for me to have a vermillionectomy.
