Need For Further Treatment After Removal Of A Tumor In The Ovaries?

Postby Micah » Fri Sep 22, 2017 11:13 pm

When the original operation was done, or perhaps even before, was she aware of what stage of cancer she has? If she has anything other than a very localized, benign tumor, then she will likely need more treatment to eradicate any remaining cancerous cells.

Staging of cancer is often done prior to surgery; did she have any scans to see if she had any growths in her belly beyond her ovary? Ovarian cancer is quite notorious for being a "silent" growth cancer, and isn't often caught until it has already spread.
