A 59-year-old man presented with a long history of a right parotid mass, which had gradually enlarged over the past 2 years. The lesion had initially been evaluated 8 years earlier, when the findings of fine-needle aspiration were suggestive of pleomorphic adenoma. Although surgical excision was offered, the patient declined. On presentation to our clinic, he reported no symptoms and denied pain, numbness, and facial weakness. He had no other medical problems, had quit smoking 20 years earlier, and denied alcohol use.
