Oncologist, Radiation 's  Response
She was treated for stage III C ovarian cancer 5 years back. Now I want to have some information. Was the surgery done at the time of diagnosis adequate or not. Whether she was treated with chemotherapy or not if given the chemotherapy then for how many cycles and which drug combination was used? Has she suffering from relapse in between? anyway let me think there was no recurrence, then first thing to be done is to get a tissue diagnosis from the neck mass. Ovarian cancer can spread to neck. If it is found to be metastatic ovarian cancer then again chemotherapy can be tried if her medical condition suits. better results can be expected.consult with your oncologist. Take care.
