I am confused I just read that the recurrence rate for tnbc was the highest between years 3 and 5,I thought after 3 years it drops down. Can any one give me the correct info on this?

Hi Denise07,

Where did you read the information about recurrence higher during years 3 - 5? This is contradictory to all the information that I have seen. I would be very interested to know since I am almost 5 years from diagnosis.

God Bless,

Denise,

Can you post the article you just read?  I found this article, but it's from 2007.  It said the risk of recurrence peaked at 3 years then declined after that.

I googled risk of recurrence after three years and it came up in one of the forms. I have a onc. appt. in two weeks I am going to ask him about this it has me upset. My doctors all say the further you get away from the date of diagnosis the better.

Dr telli, the tn doc at stanford told me the worst is two to three years   After five under three percent.

Here is an excellent piece on the questions  http://clincancerres.aacrjournals.org/content/13/15/4429.full
some good quotes   "The risk of distant recurrence peaked @ -3 years & rapidly declined after that."...."increased likelihood of distant recurrance within 5 years of diagnosis but a significantly lower relative risk thereafter."
  "...risk of recurrance rose sharply from date of diagnosis, peaked 1-3 years and droped quickly thereafter..."
 
Please note that various discussions use different dates to start the count. This article is using the date of diagnosis vs some (as in my doctor) who use the date of mast. Makes a big difference in the clock we all hear ticking in our heads.

Thanks guys! I am 3 months past 3 years does that mean my risk is starting to decline? I don't mean to sound stupid but I am really confused.

Denise07,

Yes, I'd say your risk is declining every day!  You made it past that elusive 3 year mark!  Congrats.
