Several research studies have identified a positive correlation between obesity and specific receptor statuses in breast cancer, including ER-positive, PR-positive, and HER2-positive breast cancers. However, triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) in particular has not been studied in relation to body mass index (BMI), which suggests that an analysis of triple-negative breast cancer and its relation to obesity is warranted. This study aims to analyze the association between triple-negative breast cancer and BMI through a retrospective analysis in order to further guide patient counseling about TNBC risk factors.
