  • The type of cancer you have
  • The length of time between the original diagnosis and recurrence
  • The aggressiveness of the cancer cell type
  • Your age
  • Your overall health status
  • How well you tolerate treatment
  • The length of time you are able to take treatment
  • The types of treatment you get.

Ask your doctor about your specific situation.
