Strange oral lesions

I'm a 25 yr old male in otherwise good health. I've been suffering from strange oral lesions for the past 6 months. They appear on the soft palate and to a lesser extant, on my tongue. They are mostly painless, and change drastically from day to day. A lesion will typically start off small red and circular, but will then grow very large, and will be surrounded by a thin white border. They resolve within a few days. I have been to a number of doctors, and they don't know what it is. My bloodwork is normal. Biopsy came back as "benign squamous mucosa with parakeratosis and mild submucosal chronic inflammation. Negative for dysplasia or malignancy." Doctors say that they are not very concerned that this is something serious. Pictures are here:

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

My guess is that its geographic tongue or benign migratory glossitis.
