Thyroid Cancer Survivor Tita Buenafe – 11 Years

In 2003, Ms. Tita Buenafe was 39 years old when she underwent thyroidectomy (total lobectomy) with selective neck dissection for a thyroid papillary carcinoma.  In 2006, she underwent a modified neck dissection for a recurrent thyroid carcinoma on her neck. She received a total of 3 cycles of radioactive iodine therapy after her second operation.  In 2013, she underwent a wide excision of her recurrent neck node followed by radiotherapy. She is now taking thyroid hormonal suppression therapy.  She is now 50 years old, 11-years thyroid cancer survivor.  We both thank God for this long survival.
