Recurrence (of the said illness) if it's the same type of illness that was treated. For instance, some type of cancer that is back, if it's another type that appear/develop than it's a Relapse.

Usually "relapse" is also said of "back pain", for instance, meaning both "slipping back" and "worsening".

There is also the concept of "repeat diseases", could be the case of a disease that 'shows up' at some point in life and comes back in a later phase in life, thus needing attention.
