My 30-year-old sister was diagnosed with a swelling on the face in 2011. The growth, after being removed and sent for laboratory examination, came out to be a malignant tumour. Luckily, the tumor had not spread anywhere else in the body. Since then, she has not had any problems with the growth. My question is whether she still needs any additional treatment in view of the fact that the swelling has not spread to any other past of the body.

Even though the growth had not spread anywhere else in 2011, it will be good if she can have another check up five years after in order to confirm that all is well with her. Malignant tumors should be regularly monitored because they could have spread through the blood or lymph long before any physical appearance.
