HER2 Receptors

HER2 Receptors

December 14, 2021


The other receptor that breast cancer cells can have is something called HER2. And HER2 is simply just another receptor, another protein, that’s on the outside of some breast cancer cells, that again, helps that breast cancer grow through signals down through the cancer cell. This again is very important because traditionally, these cancers tended to be more aggressive and sometimes happen in younger patients as well. Now it’s very important for us to know this because we have very good treatments to target that HER2 receptor on the outside of the breast cancer.
