Receptors are proteins on tumor cells that make the tumor cells grow and multiply. Hormone receptor-negative breast cancer cells don’t have receptors for either estrogen (ER) or progesterone (PR). This means the cancer cells don’t grow in response to hormones.
Hormone receptor-negative breast cancer accounts for about 25 to 30 percent of breast cancers. It tends to grow more quickly than hormone receptor-positive breast cancer and is more common in premenopausal women.
