Breast cancer is growing exponentially so early detection is the key.
At our clinic we have an option for breast imaging which requires no radiation, is painless, and no physical contact with the machine is required. It is called thermogram.
It is useful in many situations like in women who have dense breasts, especially younger women as mammogram can give us false negative results.
Also in women who don’t want to be exposed to yearly radiation from mammograms.
If it is abnormal, you will be sent for a regular mammogram, ultrasound, or MRI. If there is any suspicious findings, a biopsy will be indicated.
Remember thermograms are not a replacement for mammogram, and like any other testing is not 100% guarantee.
