|I had a granulosa cell tumor confined to left ovary. My gynecologist performed a laproscopy and during removal the tumor ruptured. Now I am going to see a gynecologist-oncologist. My report stage says it is at least pT1C pNX pM (not applicable). What treatment course would you recommend since rupture? How soon can I move from stage1c to stage 2? What are my percentages of recovery now since rupture? This was 2 weeks ago. My appointment is in a week. Thank you.|

It is very difficult for us to give advice just on the net without reviewing your entire case and all the report. However, sometime in case of rupture of granulosa cell tumor underwent it may be necessary to go for total abdominal hysterectomy, bilateral-ophorectomy, and multiple pelvic lymph node sampling and infracolic omentectomy.
Sometime patient need to receive combined chemotherapy consisting of bleomycin, etoposide. and cisplatin for six cycles.
Subsequent follow-up and workups is necessary to reveal that there is no evidence of disease. You should consult a good onco gynecologist and discuss in these points. Granulosa cell tumor (GCT) accounts for 1-2% of all ovarian neoplasm and they are known for late recurrences, even after 10-20 years in some cases.
This association warrants close follow up of patient by good gynecologists as recurrences can occur many years after removal of primary tumor.
Wishing you all the best.
