I thought the exact same thing! Was told (by more than one Onc that it takes so long for tumors to grow that insurance companies won't pay for scans unless there is a 'problem'. Not much comfort, I know. At 2 years, my shoulder was killing me, I just knew a tumor had grown there! I did have an MRI done, and also one on my hip that same year. Nothing there. I'm 6 years after treatment, so I don't worry too much anymore. You've made 2 years. The first is an excellent milestone!
HUGS. Try not to worry.
