October is an important month for Breast Health Awareness. You see pink ribbons all over the place, walks to support Breast Cancer Research, and extra talk on TV/radio. It’s hard not to encounter somebody who’s been touched by a devastating diagnosis of Breast Cancer or they’re being watched so an area in the breast doesn’t develop into something more.
Monitoring your breast health is as important as daily flossing. Make sure you’re completing your monthly self breast exam. For those of you who know me well, you know that I’m very passionate about achieving a healthy balance and offering a health screening method that you may not have heard about before. For some, the thought of that squished, painful exam can be very daunting.
Thermography is one such screening method that offers a no contact, radiation-free, state-of-the-art screening procedure that uses heat detection to locate areas of temperature differences in the body. Yes, I know that’s a mouthful and difficult for some to understand. Let me try to put it into language that may resonate more with you. When a tumor grows in your body, your body will typically experience an increase of blood vessels feeding the tumor and radiating heat. As an example, breast disease can be detected by looking for areas of excessive or increasing heat that may indicate areas of angiogenesis, or increase of blood vessels supplied by a growing tumor. Your thermogram is performed using a special camera to show thermal images of your body. Thermography is able to screen women of any age, as well as women with dense breast tissue and implants.
