Is this malignant?

A 34-year-old female presented with this an ulcer on the left lateral border of the tongue & floor of the mouth. She is nonsmoker and nondrinker. The lesion was associated with a mildly uncomfortable sensation. The intraoral examination identified a 5.0 * 4.0-cm ulcer on the left lateral border of the tongue. Should we go for biopsy? Can you make any diagnosis before that?
