What is Triple Negative Breast Cancer?

WHAT IS TRIPLE NEGATIVE BREAST CANCER?

Just in recent years, Triple Negative Breast Cancer has sparked interest in the news where instead of calling the tumor as ER-negative, PR-negative, and HER2-negative; researchers began using the shorthand term, "Triple Negative," dubbed the "new type" type of cancer. Being Triple Negative, you don't have a targeted therapy and that your only treatment option is chemotherapy.

Triple Negative is seen in about 15% of all breast cancers. Triple Negative is a very aggressive cancer that tends to strike younger women, pre-menopause, especially among African-American women and women who have BRCA1 mutations. The tumor tends to be fast growing and is less likely to show up on an annual mammogram. TN is more likely to metastasis early on; has a high rate of recurrence in the first 2-3 years from diagnosis and has a poorer prognosis than other types of breast cancer due to lack of specific, targeted treatment for TNBC.

  2. i was diagnosed of TNBC 6 years ago and i was terrified because the oncologist told me that it is the most aggresive form of cancer and also that there is no cure. I almost gave up but i had to try series of solution like chemotherapy and which i did twice and the turmor were still there, this even made it all worse and i cried all night. I was able to meet doctor kennedy whom used his medicine to cure me in just a few months and i went back for diagnosis and i was clean and tested negative. To those who plan on giving up don't because there is a cure i believe the medicine will work for you too if you try. Contact him directly on drkennedy118@gmail.com i am positive he can help you.
