After having cancer how long until you are "cured"?

I know that even though the cancer may have been gone for a year it is still considered in remission at what time if any does that change to being cured? Also does the time for this depend on the type of cancer?

yes u are right, it all depends on type, severity (benign, malignant), stage, age and the environment. cancer is a vague term with all and any possibility, its hard to generalise. remission of cancer may occur in malignant types and the time period varies from a few months to years.
