Cancer Reoccurrence.

In 2006 I had a right mastectomy and total lymph node removal with subsequent chemotherapy and radiation.  My Oncologist told me that my type of cancer has a high rate of reoccurence.  In 1999 I had a hysterectomy which included the removal of my ovaries.  (Also in 1999 I had my thyroid removed.)  Just this week I had light vaginal bleeding (spotting) and what felt like light menstrual cramps.  Is this a possible sign of cancer reoccurrence or most likely something else?  Thank you for your time; I truly appreciate it!
