For some people, vulvar cancer does come back after treatment, which is known as a recurrence. This is why it’s important to have regular check-ups.
If the cancer recurs, your doctor may consider further treatment such as surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy. The type of treatment you have will depend on where the cancer has recurred, what treatment you have already had, the stage and grade of the cancer, and your preferences.
