Salivary Gland Cancer Survivor Daphne Duran Amano-Alas – 29 Years in Remission


Ms. Ma. Daphne Duran Amano-Alas was 14 years old in June 1984 when I operated on her parotid cancer.  I did a parotidectomy and neck dissection.  She is now 44 years old, residing in Leyte, with no clinical evidence of recurrence.  She is now 29 years in remission. We both thank God for this long remission.


Note: Not DDAA’s picture.  Just to show the usual location of a parotid cancer, near the ear.
