Breast cancer cells have receptors for estrogen, progesterone, HER2 receptors (also called ERBB2). Triple-negative breast cancers do not have any of these receptors. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to triple-negative breast cancers.
Mutations involving BRCA1, found on chromosome 17, and BRCA2, found on chromosome 13, increase the risk for specific cancers, such as breast cancer. Discover the last research on breast cancer BRCA1 and BRCA2 here.
Some cancers are difficult to treat and aggressive including the "triple-negative" breast cancer. This type of cancer is chemoresistant even before chemotherapy begins. Here are the latest discoveries chemo-resistance in breast cancer.

Invasive breast cancers indicate a spread into breast tissues and lymph nodes. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to breast invasive carcinomas.
Breast tumorigenesis involves the production or formation of tumor(s) in breast tissue. Discover the latest research on breast tumorigenesis here.
Lobular carcinoma is an invasive type of breast cancer in which lobules, areas of the breast that produce milk, undergo malignant transformation. Here is the latest research.
The cervix contains two types of cells and when cancer arises from squamous cells within the cervix it is cervical squamous cell carcinoma. The endocervix is located just above the body of the cervix and contains glandular cells. When cancer begins here it is called endocervical adenocarcinoma. Here is the latest research on these two types of cancers.
