    Triple negative stage 2 grade 3

    Hello. My mother was recently diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer stage 2 grade 3. The tumor is extending to the chest wall but no node involvement. She's 63 no heart problems but she does have diabetes high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I've researched all I can about triple negative breast cancer but I have a couple of questions. Should she do a lumpectomy or a mastectomy considering her health already and considering the cancer is aggressive? I've read chemo is the best treatment for trip negative does it have to be through an IV or can she take chemo pills? Anyone with similar experiences?
