Breast Cancer Survivor Raidis Bassig – 12 Years in Remission

Breast Cancer Survivor Raidis Bassig – 12 Years in Remission

Ms. Raidis Bassig was 48 years old in 1999 when I did a total mastectomy and armpit dissection on her in Manila Doctors Hospital.  The breast mass was 2.5 cm in diameter. The histopathology showed invasive ductal carcinoma.  Armpit nodes were negative for metastasis.  She did NOT receive any additional anti-cancer treatment after the operation.  There were NO hormonal testings such as ER, PR, and HER-2-NEU.  Surveillance approach was symptom- and sign-directed. She has been on regular check-up with me since after the operation.  She is now 60 years old (in 2011), 12 years in remission.  We both thank God for this long remission.
