Changed Bathroom Vanity - Need to Move Light Fixture

I just bought a larger vanity, and now the light fixture is not centered. I have to move it to the left, but there is a stud in the way. My thinking is that I can use a pancake box. Is it possible to mount one of these off center? Iím not familiar with using them and donít know if there are multiple mounting holes. I am hoping to be able to secure the box on the right side. I want the box further to the left and not evenly spaced over the stud if that makes sense.

Pancake boxes can be mounted off center. The issue is going to be if the cable is long enough to reach the new location. You cannot bury splices in the wall.
