A 40-year-old female asked:
What does oral lichenoid mucositis consistent with lichen planus in biopsy means? Is it dangerous? Anything related to luekoplakia?

No and yes: Not dangerous and it is leukoplakia. Inflammation of the mucosa and lichenoid in presentation. Leukoplakia simply means "white patch". Of course this can have many causes, some of which are cause for concern. This condition requires treatment, monitoring, and a good Oral Medicine or Oral Surgeon specialist to follow you. Good Luck.
