While every person on the planet has breasts, male breast cancer is so rare that doctors don’t recommend yearly mammography for men. However, if you are a woman of a certain age you’ve likely heard your doctor ask you if you are ready to get your first mammogram. And, if you are over 40, it might have even been suggested you get one every year. But, are mammograms really your only option for breast health and cancer prevention? No.
According to the American College of Clinical Thermography:
“Breast thermography is a 15-minute non-invasive test of physiology. It is a valuable procedure for alerting your doctor to changes that can indicate early stage breast disease.
Thermography can detect the subtle physiologic changes that accompany breast pathology, whether it is cancer, fibrocystic disease, an infection or a vascular disease. Your doctor can then plan accordingly and lay out a careful program to further diagnose and /or MONITOR you during and after any treatment.”1
Thermography is able to detect issues before they become cancerous and is an invaluable tool that all women should utilize.
