Cancer that is in remission is commonly thought to be "cured", however this is not exactly the case. Remission is defined as the decrease of signs and symptoms of cancer. There are two different types of remission cancer: complete remission and partial remission. Complete remission is characterized by complete disappearance of any symptoms or signs of cancer (it is undetectable by doctor's tests), however the cancer cells may or may not remain in the body. Partial remission is when the patient is responding well to treatment as there is a noticeable reduction in the number of cancer cells and symptoms--known as "keeping cancer at bay".
