Doctors leading this study would like to learn about providing cancer treatment/therapies to Nigerian women with breast cancer based on their human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) status. This study will focus on the efficacy and safety of anti-HER2 cancer treatment before and after surgery. Participants with HER2-positive breast cancer will receive a combination of trastuzumab with pertuzumab (PHESGO) plus chemotherapy.

Exclusion Criteria:

Patients eligible for this study must not meet any of the following criteria:

Pregnant or lactating women. Women of childbearing potential not using a reliable and appropriate contraceptive method. Postmenopausal women must have been amenorrhoeic for at least 12 months to be considered of non-childbearing potential. Patients will agree to continue the use of acceptable form of contraception for 7 months from the date of last drug administration (Herceptin).
Patients with distant metastasis
Serious, uncontrolled, concurrent infection(s).
Patients who have received more than 4 weeks of tamoxifen therapy for this malignancy. Patient who have received tamoxifen or raloxifene for purposes of chemoprevention (e.g. Breast Cancer Prevention Trial or for other past indications (including previous breast cancer) are eligible. Tamoxifen or raloxifene therapy will be discontinued at least one month before the patient is enrolled on this study.
Treatment for other carcinomas within the last 5 years, except non-melanoma skin cancer and treated cervical carcinoma in-situ (CCIS)
Participation in any investigational drug study within 4 weeks preceding the start of study treatment
Other serious uncontrolled medical conditions that the investigator feels might compromise study participation including but not limited to chronic or active infection, HIV-positive patient, uncontrolled hypertension, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, uncontrolled Diabetes mellitus, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements.

Angina pectoris requiring anti-anginal medication,
Clinically significant valvular heart disease
Poorly controlled hypertension (eg, systolic > 180 mm Hg or diastolic > 100 mm Hg)
