Does having triple negative breast cancer tumors mean that they are slow growing tumors?

The opposite is true. Triple-negative breast cancer is defined by absent expression of the estrogen receptor [er], Progesterone receptor [pr], and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (her2). These cancers tend to behave more aggressively (grow faster) than other types of breast cancer.
No. Most triple negative breast cancers tend to be fast growing and more agressive than those which have hormone receptor positive cancer cells. But it is difficult to predict exactly.

What exactly does it mean when breast cancer (level 1 tumor) has already gone into the bones?

Not good. That would indicate metastasis of the tumor (spreading to the distant, unrelated organs). It is a very bad sign, indicating an advanced, possibly more aggressive tumor, and usually makes treatment more difficult and has a lower 5 year survival rate. Read more...

The T-1-c. Stage means it is bigger than some. Clear indication for anti-hormone (tamoxifen/anastrazole). I might consider oncotype testing tissue to discern benefit from chemo, but if you would not take it regardless of results, don't waste your money. Read more...
Need Oncotype-Dx. While your prognosis is excellent, we know that some women with your stage may benefit from traditional chemotherapy in addition to an aromatase inhibitor. Nowadays, we are moving towards molecular staging over anatomic staging; oncotype-dx is a multi-gene assay that can provide information regarding your probability of recurrence; if it is high, traditional chemo will be recommended.

Possibly. I would recommend discussing this in detail with your medical oncologist. Being a stage one it is unlikely that chemo will be required as long as the tumor has been adequately removed surgically. Stage one breast cancer is a potentially very curable stage with the proper treatment. Read more...
