Dear Marie: Based on what you have said, I am guessing that the third "negative" might be the HER2neu status. HER 2 is an antigen that is present on the surfaces of some breast cancer cells. Like ER and PR, it helps determine whether certain treatments may be effective. Regarding prognosis, it is impossible, without reviewing all of the information to speculate on this as it relates to you. Your best option is to have this discussion directly with your oncologist.
Hi Marie. I am triple negative also. The last one is HER2 expression. I was diagnosed in August, 2002. I had lumpectomy, 4 AC, 4 Taxotere, 33 rads, bilateral mastectomies, prophylactic on the left and immediate reconstruction. Best to you.
Hi--not knowing all the other important details (ie, size, whether invasive, node-positive, etc), I just know from reading that hormone receptor negativity is generally a sign that it has advanced beyond an earlier, typically ER+ lesion. I guess the obvious implication of lacking hormone receptors is also that it probably won't be especially responsive to estrogen-blocking therapy.
