I had my first recurrence of ovarian cancer and have read a lot that inflammation is the cause of recurrence. For years I had hot flashes and the only time they seem to have lessened was right after my hysterectomy. Now my flashes have occurred with vengence but they do not make me sweat. It is like heat builds up in me and then after a length of time, it subsides. It happens during the night as well as daytime. Can this be a symtom of a recurrence in the future.
