Breast cancer is the most common cancer for women and the risk of getting it increases with age.
Thermography helps detect Breast Cancer in its early stages by monitoring the temperature variations. Research shows that Thermograms can detect a tumor when it is only 256 cells (2 years old- the size of rice!) On the other hand, mammograms cannot detect a tumor until it is 8 years old (over 4 billion cells and size of a dime!)
Doctors that understand thermography suggest starting at an early age to establish a baseline and for early disease prevention.
I suggest that women start getting Thermograms for Breast Cancer screenings in their later 20s. Studies show that cure rates are greater than 95% when detected early.
Thermography is also much safer than mammograms. Mammograms emit a high level of radiation and can increase your risk of radiation inducted cancers.
Neither of these tests are diagnostic but Thermography is a safer alternative!
