Diet Tips for Triple Negetive Breast Cancer

11 Sep 2019 10:32

Hi All,

December 2018 i was diagnosed with TNBC, then in Feb 2019 i started my chemotheraphy until July and in August (5 weeks ago) i had my mastectomy. Surgeon told me that all my nodes are clear and that i dont need radiotheraphy. This is good news but suddenly i had panick attack on thinking what if the cancer reccur, as i've been told the chances of recurring for triple negetive is higher than other subtype of Breast Cancer.What can i do to stop it? So i've been reading a lot on diets etc after cancer but makes me more confuse of what to eat or avoid. 

Some sites said avoid dairy, red meat, beans, soya etc, but some sites said have soya and beans etc. Some sites said follow paleo diet, keto diet etc. so many which makes me more and more confuse. wheni ask my doctor, their asnwer was - balance diet.


Anyone has any diet tips for Triple Negetive Breast Cancer?

thank you

Hi Foxdale

I'm so pleased to hear that about the results you had from your consultant. As you say, it's good news. 

I think that lots of our members here will be able to recognise the reaction that you've described. You've been through a lot in this last year and it's perfectly understandable that you want to try and do what you can to lower your chances of reoccurance. 

There is a lot of information available on the internet about diet and cancer. Which diets "claim" to cure or prevent cancer and as you've found out for yourself there is a lot of conflicting advise. Not everything that we read online is true or based on scientific research.

Your Dr has given you sound advice about eating a healthy balanced diet. We've got some information on our website about cancer and diet which you may find helpful. If you'd like to chat to one of our nurses about your concerns then you're most welcome to give them a call. They're available Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm on 0808 800 4040. I'm sure they'll be able to offer some advice and support. 

Best wishes,
