What is triple-positive breast cancer?
Explaining her diagnosis, Helbig said: “It’s called triple-positive breast cancer, and from every doctor or medical professional or person that has any knowledge about cancer, they have said it is super treatable. It is highly beatable. We are going for cure, not remission here, which is exciting, encouraging, helpful, good.”
She said that although she was not sure, she believed that her condition is stage 2A. She’s expected to undergo six rounds of chemotherapy, followed by surgery and then hormonal therapy. Her treatment plan is “very clear” she said.
According to Medical News Today, “Triple-positive breast cancer is a type of breast cancer that tests positive for estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors, and high levels of HER2 protein. Knowing whether cancer cells have estrogen or progesterone receptors, and the level of HER2 protein, can help determine the best course of treatment.”
