Triple Negative Breast Cancer

Hi - I'm 63 and recently diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer. I'm being treated at the Royal Marsden in London. I am having accelerated chemo - 4 cycles of EC every two weeks, followed by 12 cycles of Taxol weekly with Carboplatin added every three weeks. That should end in February when I have an operation.

I'm waiting results of a gene test in case I need a double mastectomy.

The good news is that after 2 cycles of EC my tumour has shrunk by 1cm, 25% of its size.

I'm also triple negative, stage 2 with lymph node involvement. Epirubicin and cyclophosphamide aren't typically used here in the states as first line of treatment. I'm so happy to hear your tumor is shrinking after only 2 rounds. That's wonderful news.
