In brief: Stage

While triple negative is more resistant to treatment, your prognosis still depends on the stage of the cancer.

In brief: Agressive cancer...

I am sorry to her that you were just diagnosed with cancer. 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. It is still treatable.

In brief: Aggressive but..

Triple negative cancers (those that do not express estrogen receptors, Progesterone receptors, or her-2 neu) tend to behave more aggressive than those that do.
That said, there are other factors that will also affect your prognosis, such as stage, general health, and such. Do not lose faith, cathy. Best to you.
