Hi Margaret
Yes they do certain tests to determine if the cancer is in remission but there is no test that will confirm that you are 100% healed. That is why someone who had breast cancer will have to go back on a regular basis for follow up examinations, blood tests and sonars even after a mastectomy and chemotherapy treatment.
