Cheilitis or inflammation of the lips may be engendered due to various reversible, non-reversible and systemic factors. Actinic cheilitis is a chronic, premalignant condition confined to the lip and is associated with proliferation of atypical keratinocytes within basilar layer of mucosal epithelium. Few lesions may metamorphose into squamous cell carcinoma in situ (SCCis) or invasive squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).
