Quite a lot: Cancer, left untreated tends to progress slowly but sometimes quite fast.... It is somewhat unpredictable. But 3 years of waiting and watching will make most cancers incurable. Yet some of them can still be managed and treatable especially cervix cancer which remains localized for a much longer period of time than most other cancers.

Yes: The silicone cervical cap can last up to two years with proper care. You should check to make sure that it has no holes or cracks by holding it up to the light. You can also fill the cap with water and make sure that it has no leaks.

Dr. Andrew Silverman
Fertility Medicine 49 years experience
Cervical Cap: A cervical cap is inserted prior to relations, unlike a diaphragm it can remain in place for up to 48 hrs. The advantage is that it can be placed long before you have intercourse so that lovemaking isn't interrupted. You must check it's position before you have relations. It's more popular on the west coast so it may be difficult to find a physician who is comfortable fitting you.
