Hello Sara,

Thanks so much for your response. This is encouraging news.

Can you share any changes you did to your diet or lifestyle that you think may have contributed to being 10 years free of bladder cancer.

Also congratulations on beating breast cancer!

If all the cancerous cells are removed before they have had a chance to move into other locations, it is very possible to be “cured.” Cells which are already malignant do not, however, “unmutate.”
Bladder cancer often recurs probably because whatever caused the cells to become unstable made other cells more likely to be unstable also. But this doesn’t always happen. I have been free of bladder cancer now for almost ten years, with no sign of recurrence. Totally unrelated, I have also been free of breast cancer now for 22 years since my diagnosis. So yes, cancer can be cured!

Hello,

Does anyone know if carcinoma can ever be 100% cured? Or does it always come back? Can cells un-mutate back to normal cells?

Does anyone have more info about this? I wonder if there are people who have been cured and never had it come back.
