Remission versus Survival?

A prostate cancer patient who has undergone treatment and shows no evidence of cancer recurrence, (cancer returning), is in remission. A survivor is alive following treatment and may or may not have their cancer return requiring further treatment. Prostate cancer recurrence is determined by monitoring or testing. If you remain in remission for 10-15 years after prostate cancer treatment, it is very unlikely that the cancer will ever return, complete remission. No more treatment.
