# months, mostly: For stages i and early ii, usually 1 to 3 months. More advanced cases may need twice as long, depending on whether some surgery is needed after chemotherapy (if chemotherapy was given). You will still need monitoring with an oncologist every 2-3 months for anywheter from 5 to 7 years.
