If there is a report in the patient's records that indicates there was surgery/removal or cancer/cancerous tumor, can we assume the patient's cancer is now personal history instead of current. Also, does the report need to indicate the patient needs/does not need follow up or radiation/chemotherapy in order for us to assume that the patient is or is not cancer free.
