Breast Thermography For Me Is Another Tool To Rule Out Breast Cancer

In the past years I was always told by my OB/GYN that the only way to rule out breast cancer was to do a yearly mammogram.  I have learned since then that there is another tool that can rule out breast cancer, which is the breast themography that is offered here at COEM.

I will say that I would rather do a themography scan then a mammogram any day because a thermography scan is not painful since there is no compression of the breast.  Thank gooness for that!

Like me, I’m sure there are a lot of women who can say they don’t look forward to the compression that you have to endure during this particular type of procedure.  However, if this was the only way to detect breast cancer, it is small price to pay then not doing this type of test at all.

I have learned that breast themography is very safe and has no radiation and can also detect any changes in the breast as far back as ten years.

I am fortunate to say at this time my themography results have been a good report.

I know that if I needed any assistance in treating for breast cancer, hormones or any other symptoms that may result into an illness, Dr. Lieberman or Dr. Benoit here at COEM can give me the assistance and direction that I would need to make the positive changes.

We live in a day and age that we have other options to choose from to improve our health.  Sometimes it may take a blog such as this to let other women know you don’t have to settle for just one type of test that can actually rule out breast cancer.

I hope more physicians will come to learn about breast themography and give men and women the option to choose a scan such as this that very well may save their life with early detection.

Thank goodness for other options!

Remember October is “Breast Cancer Awareness Month”.

I recently read a car bumper sticker that really caught my eye saying, “Lets Save the TaTa’s”! Made me chuckle but it also helped me to remember.  You couldn’t say it any better then that.
