Breast Thermography

submitted by: admin on 12/08/2013
We don't have a good test in mainstream medicine for breast cancer detection in premenopausal women. Breast thermography's history, method of action, and proficiency in screening for cancer is discussed.          

Breast Thermography: Is It Underutilized?

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  The FDA published information in Journal Watch in June of 2011 that is packed with presumptive and incorrect information about breast thermography and they have to know it! Breast thermography was approved in 1982 as an adjunct to mammography to evaluate for breast cancer. In 2004 the FDA rejected breast thermography as a stand alone test for breast...

Digital Mammography

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
Do digital mammograms add much over conventional mammograms, especially for premenopausal women? How much radiation is saved? Are they safe in genetic forms of cancer? Are we finding too many cancers?      

Estrogen Blockers for Breast Cancer Treatment

submitted by: admin on 09/21/2013
  Estrogen blockers (Tamoxifen) are often used to treat breast cancer with estrogen sensitive tumors in premenopausal women. Yet there are problems such as an increased rate of uterine cancer and clotting problems. In postmenopausal women, most estrogen does not come from the ovary; it comes from estrogen production in fat tissues and from the conversion...

Finding Breast Cancer Sooner

submitted by: admin on 09/21/2013
  Breast cancer is the leading cause of death in women between the age of 40-44. We are trying to find breast cancers earlier in hopes of curing more. Yet screening technology is not working. Of the women who had breast cancer 28% had a mammogram and it was missed. Most biopsies are negative; this leads to excess cost and worry.          

Mammograms: A Ten Year Study Shows no Benefit Under age 50

submitted by: admin on 10/10/2013
  Many studies show that mammograms in women under 50 are not useful. The US is the only country that does mammograms in this age group. The reasons are explained. Too many biopsies result and many cancers are missed that lead to stress and unnecessary costs.          

Mammography

Mammograms are a poor screening test for premenopausal women. There are too many false positive and negative findings. Breast thermography is the answer. They have not been widely accepted.

Molecular Breast Imaging for Breast Cancer Screening

submitted by: admin on 05/29/2024
A novel new test is described that has not yet come into clinical practice that takes up a radioactive dye that puts out gamma rays. It is accurate but obviously has dangers related to radiation exposure. This is a potential way of screening women with dense breasts (fibrocystic breasts). Mammograms are not either an accurate or sensitive test in women with...

Screening for Breast Cancer

submitted by: admin on 10/14/2013
What are the best approaches to screen for breast cancer, especially in premenopausal women? Breast thermography is compared to mammograms, CT scans, MRIs, and breast examination. The basis for breast thermography is explained.

The Mammography Industry is Clinging to a Failed Test for Women Under Fifty

submitted by: admin on 06/18/2016
  Let's face it. Mammograms are far from a perfect test, especially in women under the age of 50, and particularly in women with fibrocystic breasts. The United States Preventive Task Force no longer recommends screening women routinely for breast cancer with mammograms. There has been a flood of complaining from the American Cancer Society and the...

submitted by: admin on 05/29/2024
          "A Return to Healing" Blog:  Fri, 10/23/2009 - 00:16 — BBelitsos Sometimes, in those rare moments—before the spin takes over—the unvarnished truth can escape from the mouths of genuine scientists who are otherwise ensconced in politicized medical bureaucracies....
