Brief Answer:
It is likely to be malignant.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your follow up question on Ask a doctor forum.
I can understand your concern.
Honestly speaking, this will be malignant only.
If not treated promptly, it will spread more and involve lungs and all.
So better to start treatment as soon as possible.
