Signs and Symptoms
The signs and symptoms for this breast cancer are similar to skin infections and other ailments. The symptoms need to be checked by a doctor at once, just to be on the safe side. The sooner a woman can get treatment, the better her chances for surviving the cancer.
Symptoms include breast lumps, a change in breast texture or color; sudden appearance of dimples on the breast; development of red, scaly or itchy patches; pain and the nipples suddenly pointing inwards instead of outwards. The nipples may ooze a discharge that is not milk. Women should get an annual mammogram to check for strange masses in the breast which may indicate cancer, especially if they have the BRCA1 gene fault.
Unfortunately, triple negative breast cancer is one of the worst forms of breast cancer a human being can have. It’s extremely aggressive and, in the first three years of diagnosis, spreads to other parts of the body. Women with triple negative breast cancer have a 16% chance of dying in five years than do women with any other form of breast cancer.
Clinical trials for new medications are available in many parts of the Western world. Doctors or oncologists may advise you to participate in one of these clinical trials if you happen to be diagnosed with this cancer. Women in clinical trials can be pulled out of the trial at any time if their doctors think they are at risk or are getting worse.
