Her news raises questions about recurrence of the disease, whether a woman can ever feel truly cancer-free after a first diagnosis, and how doctors go about treating it the second time around. Depending on the tumor location, type and size, they include hormone therapy, surgery, chemotherapy, and other newer medications, as well as radiation — Newton-John's treatment choice.
