Thanks for posting your query.

HER2/neu status: Some women with breast cancer have HER2-positive disease. This means their cancer cells make too much of a protein called HER2/neu, which indicates that the cancer may be more aggressive.
The comprehensive treatment plan that your breast cancer team recommends for you will depend on the type, grade and stage of your cancer, as well as your hormone-receptor and HER2/neu status.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
