Pleomorphic adenoma is a common type of benign tumor of parotid gland. Once diagnosis it needs to be operated as it slowly grows in size. Since it is a recurrent tumor in your case second surgery is difficult. I suggest you to consult a very experienced head and neck surgeon. Otherwise you may have severe cosmetic implications after surgery
