Breast Cancer Survivor Raidis Bassig – 20 Years in Remission

Breast Cancer Survivor Raidis Bassig – 20 Years in Remission

Ms. Raidis Bassig was operated on June 3, 1999.  Today, June 4, 2019, she came for check-up and looked forward to a picture with me again to celebrate her 20 years of remission. Indeed, as of June 4, 2019, she is 20 years in remission for her breast cancer which I operated in June 3, 1999 at Manila Doctors Hospital.  She was 48 years old then.  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 testings such as ER, PR, and HER-2-NEU.  Surveillance approach was symptom- and sign-directed.

We had a picture together in October 2011 when she was 12 years in remission.  She is now 68 years old and she is 20 years in remission.  We both thank God for this long 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.
