In brief: Benign

Technically, it can be benign or malignant, so it has to be surgically removed and histologically examined for malignant criteria.
If the pathology report comes back as hurthle cell adenoma, it's being considered as benign because there weren't any features that suggested a malignant hurthle cell carcinoma.
