Thank you for your enquiry. In answer to your question, your situation will be something your specialist will be considering, but generally there are different types of chemotherapies used for different types of cancers, so most commonly they will perform further rounds of chemotherapy if a cancer has come back and it requires this form of treatment to best combat the growth of the tumour.
There are many factors needed to be considered for both you, the surgeon and your oncologist as to what is the best overall plan for you and your diagnosis.
Please do discuss any of your concerns with your doctor; remember to write down any thoughts / concerns you may have in order to remember for your next appointment.
