Yes it's a thing.

Saw this online and thought many folks could benefit from knowing that you are not alone in your fears.

http://www.cancernetwork.com/oncology-j ... clinicians

From the intro:

...FCR has recently been defined as “fear, worry, or concern relating to the possibility that cancer will come back or progress.”[2] Thus, FCR may be a problem both for patients with curable disease who fear recurrence and for those with advanced disease who fear progression...

Hope you find it a helpful read.
