In brief: Recurrence rates

Vary from cancer to cancer..
.And rates speak to groups or "cohorts." while individuals comprise groups, the group statistic only provides a measure of reassurance or fuels the concern that you are expressing without information. Some doctors enjoy spending time helping you understand, others do not. Feelings and concerns can be sent for talk therapy. Dealing with patients fears is our job.
