The Society of Gynecologic Oncologists 2011 guidelines for post-treatment surveillance include the following [132] :

  • Physical examination including pelvic exam and lymph node assessment every 3 months for the first 2 years, every 4-6 months for the third year, then every six months for the next 2 years, and annually thereafter
  • CA-125 is optional
  • CT and/or PET scan only if recurrence is suspected
