Probably but...: .....You are very young and had a triple negative breast cancer. I do not know about uk standards for brca testing but you could carry a brca mutation (especially brca1). If so, preventative hysterectomy with ovarian surgery would be a consideration and that would take care of your problem. Discuss it with your doc. Best to you.
