For now, there are five prognostic criteria for categorizing tn as basal, instead of the rarer non-basal, which is more favorable.  The five criteria are neg ER, neg PR, neg Her2, positive for 5/6 cytokeratin and / or EGFR. 

Some say all five must be present.  My path report says I have tn, negative for cytokeratin 5/6 and a positive 25% stain for EGFR with patchy staining in the rest of the tumor.  Does anyone, (Edge?) happen to know if that makes my tumor basal like or not?
