Why Consider Thermography?

Every person is responsible for their own health and health decisions. In order to make a wise decision one can just rely on the advice of their doctor or best, seek to be educated on every decision knowing exactly what the answer may be. Then make your own decisions.
Thermography is an effective, safe, and comfortable adjunctive procedure for screening for breast cancer. Thermography is NOT a stand-alone diagnostic test, but is a safer and more comfortable way for women to screen for breast cancer more frequently. In some cases, breast thermography has detected breast cancer in women with negative mammograms. The November 2012 article in the New England Journal of Medicine brought this fact to light. “Mammograms have failed to reduce fatalities in cancer across a population base as a sole method of screening.” Thus, a multi-modal approach, incorporating more methods than just mammography, could be life-saving to many women.

Additionally, a very important area of consideration is the neglected category of women under the age of 40, as well as women with dense breasts who are unable to be effectively screened with mammography and the current standard of care. A push is currently underway to use thermography as a method to cover this gap. There are over 20,000 cases of breast cancer in the age group of women under 40 each year in the USA. When cancer occurs in a younger woman it is usually a much more aggressive form, and less likely to respond to treatment. There is currently no routine screening test for women under 40. We propose that thermography may fill this void and should be investigated as a viable test for these women.

Medical infrared thermography is very safe, in fact, it’s safe enough for pregnant and nursing women. It’s merely an accurate image of the heat radiating from your body that detects changes at the cellular level. Medical Thermography looks for a physiological change whereby other screening and diagnostic tests look for an anatomical change. Because physiology ALWAYS changes before anatomy, I choose Thermography to be my only go to choice for detecting a change in my body. Also, because Cancer is not limited to the breast tissue, I recommend that everyone get a full-body Thermography Scan done. Why? Because suspecting and knowing are not the same.

Thermography uses No radiation, no touching of the tissues and is safe enough for pregnant and lactating women.
