Breast cancer is currently the most common cancer by incidence among women in the United States with high mortality. Compared to other specific types, triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is considered to be an aggressive cancer with poor prognosis. Hence, it is important to study the risk factors associated with it. Smoking has been implicated in many cancers, including breast cancer. However, there is no evidence in literature that has shown a relationship between smoking and a specific type of breast cancer. The goal of this study is to analyze the relationship between smoking and TNBC so that we may improve the understanding of the risk factors related to this type of breast cancer.
