Currently, standard treatment options for triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) include surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. These are treatments that most cancer centers can provide. However, if you are interested in participating in a clinical trial of new treatments for TNBC, you'll need to find a cancer center participating in such a trial, provided you qualify. You might also try to seek out an oncologist or cancer center that specializes in treating TNBC.
 
Where do you find out about such things? Of course, the Internet serves as a starting point for most people, and it can be a great resource. However, having a frank discussion with your doctor about whether a switch to a different doctor or cancer center (and possibly a clinical trial) may do you some good. Don't be embarrassed to ask if your doctor is experienced in treating TNBC. Most likely, your doctor will be honest with you and will provide a referral if it will be beneficial to you.
