Hi Lilgna,

Stable is good. My doctor says I’m @ partial reemission. As for how long, cannot say for sure. Varies from person to person. Also under Glossary gives you a lot of helpful information. Peace, take care and God Bless.


stable disease - Cancer that is not decreasing or increasing in extent or severity

remission - Disappearance of the signs and symptoms of cancer. When this happens, the disease is said to be "in remission." A remission may be temporary or permanent.
