What is Triple Negative Breast Cancer?

Breast cancer forms in tissues of the breast, usually the ducts (tubes that carry milk to the nipple) and lobules (glands that make milk). Triple negative breast cancer lacks three receptors, estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2).
