Hello Ma'am,
This is a very rare situation and its severity should be analyzed by your treating team.
In fact, depending on the characteristics of the cancer (aggressive or not, nature of the tumor markers, etc.), a different decision will be made.
I highly recommend that you discuss this with your team. They are in a much better position than I am to answer you adequately.
Happy day,
Alexandre Chagnon, pharmacist
