(to the tune of "Mona Lisa")

Adenoma, Adenoma, Virchow named you;
You’re a common lesion in the neck and face -
Presentation with an endocrine secretion,
Or a painless little lump that’s out of place.

We don’t understand your motives, Adenoma.
What strange factors make you spurn control and grow?
But your schemes don’t require exploration,
They’re revealed by needle aspiration.

pleiomorphic adenoma
 of the salivary gland

Are you truly benign, Adenoma,
Or just an irksome Neoplasia’s little bro?
Are you truly benign, Adenoma
Or just an irksome Neoplasia’s little bro?
Adenoma, Adeno-o-ma.

(to the tune of "BUONA SERA")

Sayonara, salivary Adenoma
I’ve engaged a surgeon trained in ENT.
In the morning, he’ll resect you from your bed there
For removal of the specter of malignancy.

By next evening, Adenoma, we’ll be separate -
You’ll be sliced and spread on slides for full review;
And my mouth-droop from that nerve you’ve cruelly damaged -
With its fibers freed, my smile might yet be salvaged.

In the long-term, I am better off without ya’
Sayonara, Adenoma, kiss me goodbye.
Hasta mañana, Adenoma; kiss me goodbye.
