Oncologist recommendation for Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) - Bangkok

Recommended Posts

My sister (52yrs) was diagnosed with stage 3 Triple-negative lobular breast cancer approximately 8 months ago and has now undergone 6 month chemo and a double mastectomy. She has also had several lymph nodes under arm removed.

 

She will now be completing 6 weeks of radiation therapy after which she is planning to travel to visit me in Bangkok if she is able to do so.

 

Latest histology since completing chemo shows lobular TBNC particularly resistant to chemo and is possibly more extensive than first thought.

 

Her oncologist in Australia is severely under equipped to provide adequate care given my sister's remote location with very long wait times to get lab results to determine path forward if any.

 

I am hoping to get recommendations for a consult to a specialist in Bangkok while she is here to get a second opinion on her overall condition/treatment as well as suggesting any potential labs she might get done while here.

 

Many thanks

I recommend she consult this doctor:

 

https://www.vejthani.com/doctor/dr-napa-parinyanitikul/

 

She is a professor at Chulalongkorn with specific interest in tripe negative breast cancer and completed a fellowship in medical breast oncology in the US at the prestigious MD Anderson Cancer Center.

 

She is only at Vejthani on Saturdays so make appointment well in advance. Otherwise might be possible to see her at the Chulalongkorn after hours clinic but that can be crowded, she'll likely be able to spend more time talking with your sister if seen at Vejthani.

 

Obviously, have her bring all records with her.

 

Has your she  been tested for the BRCA1 mutation yet?

Thanks for the recommendation, I will try to set this up well in advance.

 

yes she was tested and is not carrying that mutation.
