Dear lybrate-user, it is called tripple negative breast cancer. I feel only radiotherapy is needed and be on follow up. No need of hormone or chemotherapy.

It's a grade 3 tumour with size more than 3 cm. If mastectomy done and no lymph nodes positive patient does not need radiotherapy. However triple negative are aggressive cancers and for these chemotherapy is a must for any tumour greater than 0.5cm in size. You should complete all the prescribed doses of chemotherapy and be on regular follow up. That gives a best chance for cure/control.
