Mixed germ cell ovarian tissue stage 3

The patient has had mixed germ cell ovarian tissue tumour of malignant nature, stage 3. The patient was treated with JEB(carboplatin/etoposyde/bluomycin) chemotherapy 6 cycles from August 2001 to December 2001 and has had no signs of any ailment/recurrence all these 16 years. The patient got the lower abdomen ultrasound done and we're indicative of ovaries, uterus and reproductive system otherwise fine / in shape. The patient has been getting regular menstrual cycles and no other complaints all these 16 years. The patient, is however a bit worried if: 1. Stage 3 malignant cancer is contagious, ie. Pass on to future generations, even though the patient has been fine all these 16 years since 2001, even if the patient has had no cancer cases in heredity. 2. If the JEB chemotherapy shall otherwise have no impact on the fertility given the patient was diagnosed and treated fully, before attaining puberty. 3. If there are any odds of recurrence, given it was a malignant stage-3 tumour.

Thyroid Cancer & Recurrence

I had papillary thyroid cancer in 2016 - total thyroidectomy followed by RAI. My cancer was restricted to the right lobe, no LNM, no invasion of tissues in the neck. At my last blood test, my thyroglobulin was 0.3 (down from 0.4) Is that a good number? Does it classify as undetectable? I always wonder if I'm low-risk of a recurrence?
