This year over 192, 000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the USA. Even more tragic is the large number of cancer cases that will be missed until the cancer is very severe and late stage. All cancer specialists agree that early detection is the key to surviving this deadly disease.
By the time breast cancer can be seen on a mammogram, that cancer has been growing for 10 years. It is now known that 20% of breast cancers can not be seen by a mammogram.
What is vitally needed is a proven test that can detect the earliest changes in breast tissue. Cancer cells need a good blood supply and indeed develop their own blood supply to insure growth.
Pre-cancerous tissue also develops it’s own blood supply and causes abnormal heat patterns in the female breast. We now have a unique technology that can detect the earliest signs of warnings of developing breast cancer. This breast screening is called thermography.
This literally means “heat picture” and is a measurement of the infared heat given off by your body. Thermography converts infrared radiation emitted from the skin into electrical impulses that are seen in color. The spectrum of colors indicate the amount of infrared radiation being emitted by the skin surface. This could be either an increased or decreased amount.
Breast thermography is a state of the art technology that uses advanced infrared computerized camera systems to detect heat patterns in the breast. This system can detect abnormal heat patterns and then analyze the information with the latest computer programs. This information is then analyzed by a doctor who is Board Certified in Medical Thermography.
The benefit of this testing is that it offers the opportunity of earlier detection of breast disease than has been possible with breast self exam, doctor examination, or mammography alone.
Medical thermograms detect the subtle physiologic changes that accompany breast pathology. This could be cancer, fibrocystic disease, an infection, or perhaps vascular disease. It is extremely important for you and your doctor to monitor these changes.
Studies show that breast thermography has the ability to warn a woman that a cancer is forming up to 10 years before any other test can detect it.
An abnormal breast thermogram is the single most important sign of high risk for developing breast cancer. This is 10 times more significant than a first order family history of breast cancer.
Is there a hormone imbalance in your breasts? Most breast cancers are known to be estrogen dominant. A thermogram of the breasts is the only non-invasive procedure that can detect estrogen imbalance in the breast. If estrogen levels are imbalanced it is imperativve that the hormone levels be corrected.
Once the homrone balance has been restored, a woman’s breast cancer risk is greatly reduced.
