Is it a usual thing that the cancer comes back after curing to the patients after a while or in the future ?

In brief: Here are some...

The odd to have recurrence of a treated cancer always exists, but the longer no recurrence after its definitive Rx, the less its recurrence; the 5-year survival rate is designed to serve the purpose of comparison & study.
Besides, the extent and tissue features of cancer play their important role affecting long-term survival. So, ask the treating doctor for more specifics on this subject.
