As Breast Cancer Awareness Month comes to a close, I would like to afford everyone the opportunity to screen for breast cancer. Our next screening date is Saturday, November 12.
At the current rate 1 in 8 women being diagnosed with breast cancer, it behooves one to get the earliest detection method available.
For more information about thermography, read my previous two posts here and here.
As we gear up for Breast Awareness Month in October, we should not allow the opportunity to pass for self screening and taking preventative measures. Here are four reasons to get a thermography scan now.
1. Earliest detection
Of all the detection methods used, thermography provides the earliest detection. Cancer cells in the breast double every 90 days. It takes approximately 8 years to reach 4 billion cancer cells (about 1 cm). This the typical amount of cancer cells that is detectable by mamograms. A thermogram can show a clinical marker when the cancer cells are approximately at only a few hundred cells and many YEARS before a mamogram can.
2. Non-invasive and painless
In thermography, nothing touches the breasts. As a matter of fact, no part of your body is touched during the procedure. There are no worries of painful and uncomfortable breast squeezing.
3. No risks
There are no risks involved in taking a thermogram. Unlike the mamogram, there is NO radiation involved in thermal imaging. Additionally, the mamogram involves squeezing the breasts. Therefore, if there are any cancerous cells present, the cancer may be squeezed into the lymph and spread throughout the body- exacerbating the condition and making it less controllable.
Also, there is no risk of complication if the breasts contain implants.
4. Other pathologies may be detected
In addition to potential breast cancer, thermography may be able to detect other potential pathologies such as: vascular disease, fibrocystic disease, possible pregnancy, and other. It may also show a pattern indicative of excess estrogen which usually indicates a high predisposition to getting breast cancer.
Available on Saturday Oct 1, 2016- by appointment.
Risk free thermography scans provide detection years earlier than any other diagnostic method.
There is NO body contact,
NO squeezing of the breast,
NO radiation involved
Advanced Thermography of South Florida will be at Miami Acupuncture Therapy on Saturday October 1, 2016 for patient screening. Please reserve your appointment as appointment availability for that day is on a first reservation basis.
Thermography can also screen for high estrogen accumulation which is considered a high risk predisposition to get breast cancer and then allows for prevention measures can be made. Other body areas can also be screened for other conditions.
Don’t squeeze those cancer cells into your lymph !
