Answer

The National Comprehensive Cancer Network recommendations are similar and include the following [45] :

  • Physical examination including pelvic exam every 2-4 months for the first 2 years, 3-6 months for the next 2 years, and annually after year 5
  • CA-125 or other tumor marker assays at every visit if initially elevated
  • Genetic risk evaluation should be conducted, if not previously done
  • CT, MRI, PET-CT, or PET as clinically indicated
