Actinic Keratosis of the Ear

Recently received pathology report saying I have actinic keratosis.  It is on my ear.  While I await my follow up appointment with dermatological oncologist can anyone help me understand the result and share a similar experience if you have had...

result =
shave biopsy. "At Least Actinic Keratosis, ulcerated, deep and extending to peripheral margins."

I am not liking the at least or deep and extending language :(
