Triple negative=chemo?

I have just been diagnosed with IDC and found out Friday my cancer is triple negative. Prior to this finding the plan was lumpectomy followed by radiation. The tumor is small about 8mm. I understand from reading that triple negative generally requires chemo. Anyone have more info for me. Any advice would be appreciated

I finished rads in 1/08  after 6 runs of AC-T. I had triple negative last June2007 and had lumpectomy with lymph node removal. I do know the Onc told me this was standard care for Triple Negative but your tumor is smaller than mine.There is a good web site just type in Triple Negative Breast cancer and you will see it as a forum.Triple Negative is suppose to be very responsive to chemo and it is a very aggressive cancer so you may want to be aggressive back.Good luck
