October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. One in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Approximately 85% of women have no family history of breast cancer. Breast self exams and mammography are two ways to identify changes in breast tissue and diagnose breast cancer.
Breast thermography is another way to identify breast cancer cells before they divide and multiply. Thermography can identify changes in breast tissue before Stage 0. This test is painless (no compression), with no radiation and is reviewed by a nationally acclaimed interventional radiologist.
Consider having a breast thermogram in addition to self exams and mammograms. The thermogram is an “adjunctive test and does not replace mammograms or other anatomical imaging tests.” See Image of Health Thermography for more information. There are several offices in Virginia and a mobile unit that travels to various areas.
