Nevertheless both my mother and I (at separate times) have asked a cancer specialist that very question.

In each case the specialist took us seriously and answered us politely.
Again, I'm not a medical doctor. As I already posted,
The OP asks for the dumbest questions [I've] been asked more than once. I am not a doctor; I am a person who had cancer.
(Bolding added for emphasis.)

To elaborate:

Me: "I had cancer" (in conversational context).
Yutz: "Did they get it all?"
