Mammogram vs Breast thermography

PERSONALLY I believe mammograms are no good. It has been proven that they are not always accurate-not even close. I also believe that when women endure the hideous pain of squishing the breasts – if there is a leision or tumor – the sqeezing may spread it (personal opinion) – also it breaks down the breast tissue. Below is information about something that I think is important for all women, and a viable alternative to mammograms.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a test that could offer women true early detection, enough in advance to prevent invasive tumor growth?

Breast thermography has the ability to warn women up to 10 years before any other procedure that a cancer may be forming.

Are you personally at greater risk for breast cancer?

Women with a family history are definitely at greater risk, but 75% of women who get breast cancer have no family history of the disease. Regardless of your family history, if a thermogram is abnormal you run a future risk of breast cancer that is 10 times higher than a first order family history of the disease. Thermography is the only technology to provide women with a future risk assessment. If discovered, certain thermographic risk markers can warn a woman that she needs to work with her doctor to improve her breast health. Monitoring with regular check-ups and thermography will look for improvements with time or possibly the earliest signs that a problem may exist.

Is there a hormone imbalance in your breasts?

Since the single greatest risk factor for the development of breast cancer is lifetime exposure to estrogen, normalizing the balance of the hormones in the breast may be the first and most significant step in prevention. Breast thermography is the only known non-invasive procedure that can detect estrogen dominance in the breasts. If a woman’s thermographic images suggest a relative progesterone deficiency (estrogen dominance), treatment of this condition may play an important role in prevention. With treatment from her doctor, a woman can use this information to balance the hormones in her breasts. Follow-up thermograms are compared to the baseline estrogen dominant images as part of the treatment monitoring process.

Do you know that 23% of all breast cancers occur in women under 49?

This is the most common cancer in women in this age group. Breast cancers in younger women are usually more aggressive and have poorer survival rates. Breast thermography offers younger women a sensitive non-invasive (no radiation and painless) addition to their regular breast health check-ups beginning with baseline screening at age 20.

Unlike many after-the-fact imaging technologies in use, breast thermography has the ability to give a warning signal in advance of invasive tumor growth. Combined with an unprecedented role in risk assessment, screening for younger women, and possibly prevention, breast thermography offers women information that no other procedure can provide. However, breast thermography is not a replacement for mammography or any other form of breast imaging. Breast thermography and mammography are complementary procedures, one test does not replace the other. Studies show that the earliest detection is realized when a multiple testing approach to screening is taken. This multimodal approach includes breast self-examinations, physical breast exams by a doctor, mammography, and thermography.
