Recurrence Rates

Does anyone know the chances of recurrence of tumors less than 2cm?  I was told they are super low.  Does anyone have any information that could be helpful?  My follow up plan is CT, chest X-ray, and blood work at 6 months for a year, then yearly for 5 years.

    95%

    My doctor told me that I had a 95% chance that it wouldn't come back.  I was stage 1b (5.3 cm).
