It has been ten months since comedienne Rufa Mae Quinto – know for her sexy brand of humour and for her “well-endowed” areas – had her breast implants removed. On Friday’s episode of “Aquino & Abunda Tonight” she spoke of what prompted her to make the decision.

“Kasi last year, diba, nagka-cyst ako sa breast…left…naramdaman ko parang ang bigat lagi, hindi ko alam kung likod ko, o ano, basta masakit. Tapos parang namaga siya hanggang sa, ‘yon, naningas na siya.”

Rufa Mae recounts that she went to see an oncologist, who discovered two cysts in her left breast. After removal of the cysts – which turned out to be benign – her body rejected the gel implants which were put in.

The actress says she was subjected to a total of four surgeries in all, to correct the situation.

“Karera and pinaguusapan, kahit maraming pera, but you have to be healthy,” Abunda opined, as Rufa Mae detailed her new found passion for sports and athletic activities since her cancer scare.
