Why should I have a Breast Thermogram?
If a significant change in breast cancer mortality is to be realized, we have to rethink what screening tests truly are. Are we currently providing “screening” or “detection”? A critical look at our current breast cancer screening strategy must be made. A change from sole dependence upon procedures that only provide detection of existing cancers to technologies that reflect the early cancerous process itself provides women with true screening. Thermography has this ability to act as an early warning system. Studies have shown that thermography has the ability to warn that this process is underway 8-10 years before any other test can detect it – even before the cells become cancerous. This, coupled with a possible role in breast cancer prevention, makes thermography one test that no woman should be without.
