     Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, aside from non-melanoma skin cancer.  Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women.  In women ages 25-30, breast cancer is the leading cause of death overall.

    Mother, sisters, daughters, wives are tragically being lost to breast cancer.  It is up to us, to women, to stand up for our healthcare rights, to demand proper insurance coverage, better screening and treatment.

Who should have a thermogram for breast cancer screening?
                                                                                              
           I am so grateful for the opportunity to share with you information about Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (Infrared Thermal Mammography), so that more and more women can educate themselves about breast cancer screening options and strategies, and find something that is suitable and appropriate to them.  The current “gold standard” in breast cancer screening consists of mammography, ultrasound and fine needle aspiration, and leaves much to be desired.   According to the Center for Disease Control, there has been no appreciable improvement in terms of surviving cancer in the last fifty years, with the exclusion of cervical cancer.  Clearly, the current breast cancer screening modalities are in need of a change.  Unfortunately, change happens slowly in the medical community, and old standards of care are often held onto for reasons that are not entirely clear, nor evidence based. 
           Personally, I am a firm believer in creating evidence-based standards of care.  That is why I believe in the value of thermography as an addition to a comprehensive breast cancer screening regimen.

              Thermography breast cancer screening is
                                especially good for: 
                            Women benefit especially are those for whom 
                       mammography is particularly unsuited or less accurate:

                      Women under 50 years, who have dense breast tissue,      
                              although women of every age should take 
                                  advantage of this non-invasive technology

                      Women especially between the ages of 20 and 35, who      
                             are at particular risk for aggressive breast cancer

                      Women over 50 who want to continue proactive a breast 
                             health monitoring program

                      Women who are pregnant or nursing 

                      Women with breast implants, fibrocystic breast disease,  
                             surgical reduction or mastectomy

                      Any woman who is seeking the earliest warning signs of 
                            breast cancer and to monitor her breast health and/
                            or effects treatment

                      All women should start a screening program with 
                            thermal imaging by age 20, the same as she would 
                            start her PAPs

            Younger women, under age 50, tend to get the more aggressive forms of breast cancer.  Since we know that breast cancer does not appear overnight, but has a long subclinical life, we should be screening women at much younger ages than is currently being employed.  Earliest detection remains the key to surviving this terrible disease.  Finding a problem before it becomes breast cancer, namely PREVENTION, remains the ultimate goal.
