Answer

American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and European Society of Medical Oncology (ESMO) guidelines concur that following surgical treatment, patients should receive a pelvic exam every 3-4 months for the first 2-3 years, then every 6 months until year 5 to monitor for recurrent disease. [28, 26] The Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SGO) and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) recommend review of symptoms and pelvic exam every 3 to 6 months for the first 2 years and every 6 to 12 months thereafter. [24, 31]

ESMO and SGO guidelines prefer PET/CT over CT alone for assessment of suspected recurrence. [26, 31]
