How to treat Granulosa cell tumour?
Q: I am 28 years old and underwent total abdominal hysterectomy due to the presence of juvenile granulosa cell tumour 2 years back. There was a metastasis and again last year I underwent surgery and chemotherapy (BEP) for 4 cycles. Because of repeated surgeries and side effects of chemotherapy, I am very much worried of its recurrence. Will the tumour recur even after chemotherapy? Can I have sex with my husband? I got married since 3 and a half years and I am not interested in sex, but my husband is very much interested though he does not force me into it. I don't want him to get dejected. He takes good care of me. We do not have kids but we are not worried about it.
A:Granulosa cell tumour is a highly curable tumour after surgery and chemotherapy. The cure rates are very high if the disease was confined to the ovary only. There is no problem from medical point of view for having sex, you may use a lubricant jelly to facilitate it.
