What are the chances of recurrence of ovarian cancer?
Q: I am a patient of ovarian cancer. I was treated and am now free of the disease. Can the disease recur? What precautions do I need to take?
A:If it is stage I or II then the chances of recurrence are relatively low but such chances are very high in stage III disease. There are no definitive preventive measures but routine clinical examination, ultrasound/CT scan of the abdomen and CA 125 monitoring are suggested.
