Capital Area Thermography, Concord, NH
Every year when Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October) comes
around I am a saddened and surprised that thermography hasn't
become more popular. Part of this is my mindset. I'd rather focus
on breast health and ways to prevent breast cancer at the cellular
level than put the emphasis on testing and retesting until you finally
do find something to poke, prod, cut out or radiate. That's why I call
October Breast Health Awareness Month, not Breast Cancer Awareness
Month. I understand that mammography has been the gold standard
for years. Doctors are the most familiar with this test, and many believe
that a mammogram is the best test for detecting breast cancer early.
But it's not. Studies show that a thermogram identifies precancerous
or cancerous cells earlier, and produces unambiguous results, which
cuts down on additional testing--and it doesn't hurt the body. Isn't this
what women really want?
