Breast Cancers Without Lumps

Breast Cancers Without Lumps Introduction There are several types of Breast Cancer that don’t normally present as a palpable lump or as a tumor detected on a mammogram. These are the types of cancers that are usually detected in advanced stages and may have already become metastatic. The signs and symptoms are not definitive. Because of this, they are not always obvious or are mistaken for something other than what they are. Two such cancers are Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) and Paget’s disease of the Breast. Signs...

Lymph Node Importance

Lymph Node Importance The lymphatic system is a network of organs and tissues that help rid the body of waste and toxins. As an important part of the immune system, it is comprised of the tonsils, adenoids, spleen, thymus gland, lymph vessels, and hundreds of lymph nodes. Unlike the circulatory system that has the heart to pump blood and nutrients throughout the body, the lymphatic system has no pump to distribute its clear/yellowish fluid. The movement of the lymphatic fluid is dependent on the movement of the...

Breast Cancer Detection Tool

Breast Cancer Detection Tool Breast Cancer While mammography, Ultrasound, MRI, and other imaging tools are tests of anatomy and rely on finding a physical structure. Thermography is a test of the heat produced by increased blood vessel circulation and metabolic changes associated with a structures genesis and growth. This allows thermography to see subtle changes outside of other testing. With thermography screenings not requiring contact with the body we are also able to image areas of the breast such as the axillary...

Thermography, Mammography, Ultrasound – What’s The Difference?

Thermography, Mammography, Ultrasound – What’s The Difference? The following graph outlines the differences between mammography, medical infrared imaging (thermography), and ultrasound. Medical infrared imaging detects surface heat as a byproduct of biochemical reactions. As such, the test adds valuable physiologic information that cannot be obtained from any other imaging procedure. Thermography is designed to be used as an adjunct (an additional test) to a woman’s regular breast health care. Mammography Uses X-rays to produce an image that is a...
