Thyroid Cancer Survivor Jean Bella Tipace – 24 Years in Remission

Thyroid Cancer Survivor Jean Bella Tipace – 24 Years in Remission

by Reynaldo O Josonon Saturday, February 25, 2012 at 8:11pm ·

Ms. Jean Bella Tipace was 38 years old in 1988 when I operated on her multifocal papillary thyroid cancers in Manila Doctors Hospital.  I did a near-total thyroidectomy.  She has been on thyroid hormone replacement since after the operation.  There has been no other treatment. We just did monitoring and sign-symptom-based surveillance.  I saw her today, February 21, 2012.  She has no clinical evidence of recurrence 24 years after her operation.  We both thank God for this long remission.
