In brief: Yes

Yes, it can recur even after many years.
It is still difficult to predict which people will have a recurrence, but re-evaluation should be undertaken if suspicious symptoms develop.

In brief: Unlikely

Usually if there were able to remove the whole tumor is very unlikely that it will grow back, but needs continuos follow up.
