Depapillated area on dorsum of tongue

Good morning, I'm a 39 years old male non-smoker and a moderate drinker.
Since beginning of November, a depapillated area has 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, is this biopsy result consistent with a Geographic tongue diagnosis and can I exclude any malignant possibilities?
thanks in advance
Best regards
