Inhibin B is my marker. It was elevated in Aug. 2009, when I was initially diagnosed. BSO and debulking surgery with cervix removal was performed, with all results being negative when analyzed. I also completed a series of 6 chemo sessions of pacli- taxel/carboplatin by 4/30/2010. My inhibin results slowly started to increase beginning 7/2013, with results being 20.1, 22.9, 41.9, 52.3, 53.5 and 93.5 respectively . In July 2015 I went to the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and was seen by Barbara Goff, Gyn/Onc and was prescribed Glucophage 500 mg BID and Letrozole 2.5mg daily and my inhibin B dropped to 41.9 , 20.5 and 24.6(4/2016) respectively. I was diagnosed, at Sylvester Cancer Ctr in Miami, where I have received my tx, with recurrent GCT(4/2016). Does this mean that I have relapsed? I will f/u with Dr Goff, in Seattle, WA, in July 2016.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Your testing results need to be analyzed by a doctor. From what I understand, your inhibitor B count dropped after taking the prescribed treatment. Sometimes cancer to be reoccurring and you need to check systematically to make sure there is no relapsing. At this point, the best thing you can do is keep continual communication with your doctor who can explain your current status.
