Yes: Unfortunatelly, chances of cancer relapse are extremelly high; and Mulitple Mylema does share this kinf of lets say personality; but good news its that they took the disease before it spread thru important organs sucha as liver or brain; so if this is the case it can be 100% cured; as long as it doesn´t get to liver or brain; the thing its that is very important specifically to stop the spread
