Tripple-Negative Breast cancer is cancer that tests negative for estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors, and excess HER2 protein. This means that the growth of the cancer is not fueled by hormones or by the HER2 protein receptors, therefore treatment options are limited. Triple-negative breast cancer is more aggressive and has a poorer prognosis than other types of breast cancer. โฃโฃ
