Which breast cancer is hardest to treat? Triple-negative breast cancer is that which tests negative for three receptors: estrogen, progesterone, and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2). It is also the least common form of breast cancer and the hardest to treat.
Can you live 30 years after breast cancer? Most breast cancer cases are highly treatable, especially when a doctor diagnoses them at an early stage. Many people survive for years or even decades after getting a breast cancer diagnosis and receiving treatment. Typically, the earlier a doctor diagnoses and treats the condition, the better a person’s outlook.
