Breast Cancer Survivor Teodora Punzalan – 25 Years in Remission

Ms. Teodora Punzalan was 48 years old in 1988 when I did a modified radical mastectomy on her breast cancer in Manila Doctors Hospital.  The histopathologic result showed invasive ductal carcinoma with nodes negative for metastasis or spread.  She did not receive additional treatment after the operation, just regular check-up with me.  I saw her today for her check-up.  She is now 72 years old.  There is no clinical evidence of recurrence of her breast cancer.  She is now 25 years in remission.  We both thank God for this long remission.
