Recurrent Disease

If your cancer recurs, there are several options for treatment. These include repeat surgery, re-treatment with the same chemotherapy given initially, treatment with a different type of agent (chemotherapy, hormonal or targeted therapy) and sometimes radiation. As each recurrence will be different, it is important to discuss your individual situation with your team. It is also important to investigate whether there is a clinical trial that is appropriate for you. Don’t be afraid to seek a second opinion.

Isolated vaginal recurrences can often be cured so early detection and recognition of abnormal symptoms is critical. Notify your physician if you develop abnormal bleeding or other unusual pelvic symptoms following treatment for endometrial cancer.
