What is Cancer Remission?
Remission is when the signs and symptoms of cancer have disappeared, although cancer cells may still remain in your body. There are two types of remission...
When treatments have killed off most of your cancer cells, but tests show you still have some in your body. Your tumor has shrunk from its original size or hasn’t grown bigger. Your doctor may also say that your cancer is 'stable', or not progressing.
All signs of your cancer and its symptoms are gone. Another common term used is 'cancer free'. Some doctors will only consider you to be in complete remission after being symptom-free for 5 years.
