Remove: A pleomorphic adenoma is a benign glandular tumor with changes arising in facial glandular tissue. In this region the parotid gland is found and such lesions require parotidectomy with facial nerve dissection to preserve that branch that goes to the angle of the mouth and maintains normal smile.
