I'm 35 and had a 13cm borderline tumor in my Fallopian tube. I had my right ovary and Fallopian tube removed 2 months ago. There is information about Borderline Ovarian tumors but I can't find much on Fallopian tube tumors. Can someone direct me to a good resource? Has anyone else experienced this?

Alliton - there is also a lot of new studies out there that feel ovarian cancer actually starts in the fallopian tubes.....they are often treated as the same cancer. If you are going to be diagnosed with Ovarian/Fallopian Tube Cancer, the earlier the stage the better the chance for suvivial.
The follow up should be every 3 months for 2 years then every 6 months. Borderline Tumors often have very good prognosis.
If you google, ovarian cancer starts in the fallopian tubes, you will find info.
