Most people do not really understand or they have a distorted and/or incorrect definition of the word remission as it is used in relation to cancer patients.

Most commonly people seem to believe that going into remission means that the patient has been successfully treated and safe.

According to the American Cancer Society, cancer remission is a “period of time when the cancer is responding to treatment or is under control”.

When there is a complete cancer remission, all the signs and symptoms of the disease disappear.

Complete cancer remissions may continue for several years and be considered cures.
