Biopsy Findings

Hi,
My husband had a biopsy on his mouth almost 3 weeks ago. He has chewed tobacco for 15 years and since quit 5 months prior to the biopsy.His results where as follows.No dyslplasia or malignancy.Squamous epthelial hyperplasia and chronic inflammation.Can someone explain to me what theses results mean? The surgeon was short with us, just saying nothing else needed to be done.He said it was inflammed and thickened but didn't really go into detail what theses results mean.If this will improve in time and if there was still an increased risk to develop oral cancer with theses findings. Thanks.

There is no maligancy, so that's good.  

These changes are r/t his tobacco habit.  

This may improve with time or remain the same so long as your husband doesn't return to his tobacco habit.

His chance of developing oral cancer still exist and this should be monitored every year.
