Here is something I didn't know but I was digging around the internet, having been found to have very high blood pressure and now awaiting a medical consultation.


Donna, have you come across this?

Thought I'd highlight these couple of lines from the article in case anyone misses them:

Not all breast tumors are the same. The study looked for GRK4 in two specific types of breast cancer, known as hormone-sensitive and triple-negative.

"Our conclusion may not be applicable to other types of breast cancer," said Yue.

I found this observational study (a positive association between hypertension and breast cancer incidence among postmenopausal women):

Thank you, Donna for the interesting article.  I had never heard that the two things could be linked to each other.

I do not have ANY of the predisposing conditions for tnbc but, as Kellyless has said, I got tnbc simply because I am a woman and I have breasts!

Strange thing is, I have never been known to have high blood pressure and now all my Christmases have come at once:  I have tnbc AND hypertension!
