In some cases the time frames that the site uses for diagnosisn and treatment are not too exact so it may be difficult to know for sure, but if the person was dianosed five years ago and finshed treatment three years ago they were in treatment for two years. In most cases if a person has not had treatment for three years they were probably cancer free or at least no evidence of disease at the point thy finished treatment. Good Luck

Occassionally I will read where a person has finished treatment say 3 years ago, but their diagnoses was 5 years ago. What does this mean? It has me confused.
