Triple negative breast cancer is a sub-type of the disease for which there are currently no targeted treatments. In addition, this form of breast cancer can be more aggressive than others.
Although effective treatments for breast cancer exist, there are many patients for whom these treatments don’t work or stop working over time.
We know that our genetics play a key role in determining breast cancer risk, but we need to know much more about the specific genes involved and how they affect an individual person’s risk.
When breast cancer spreads to other parts of the body, it can sometimes be treated and controlled but cannot be cured.
Women at high risk of developing breast cancer can take chemoprevention drugs, such as tamoxifen, to reduce their risk. However, chemoprevention will be effective for only some women.
