Early & Advanced Detection of Breast Cancer
Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States, with about 235,000 diagnosed in 2014, according to the National Cancer Institute.[i] Typically, conventional doctors will recommend that women do a yearly mammogram after age 35, which is an x-ray exam of the breast that’s used to detect cancer.
Breast cancer develops from a cancerous cell that presents in the lining of a duct or lobule in one of the breasts. A malignant tumor is a group of cancer cells that can grow into surrounding tissues or spread to distant areas of the body.
A good way to find out whether you are really at risk for breast cancer or already have it is through thermography testing, which is an excellent alternative to mammograms. Thermography uses infrared imaging technology to detect and measure heat and vascular patterns within the breast that can indicate cancer. Good thermography devices, if used properly, can detect 86% of non-palpable breast cancers (breast cancers that you can’t see or feel yet).
As well, thermography can detect abnormal findings in the breast, up to ten years before a cancerous tumor can be detected on a mammogram. It can also be used to track your progress on a treatment regimen and is completely safe, non-contact, pain and radiation-free.
At the Center, we work with a board-certified thermologist and licensed acupuncturist, Martin Bales, L.Ac., Ph.D., who uses a very sophisticated thermography device to screen our patients for breast cancer.
According to Dr. Bales, the thermography device can track inflammatory processes, but more importantly, it reveals vascular, or vein patterns in the breast.
