Mammogram Paradox:

A False Sense of Security or Unnecessary Mastectomy?

By Tirza at Better Breast Health – for Life!™

 
In this, the month before October and Breast Cancer Awareness Month, let us not lose sight that many of our friends, loved ones and acquaintances are getting a false sense of security with “a normal mammogram.” Mammograms miss 20% to 75% of breast cancers, depending on the density of the breasts. Also concerning: while up to 25% of cancers diagnosed by mammogram are Stage 0, most of those cases result in unnecessary mastectomies. Hundreds of thousands of women are being impacted. What will we do? Let’s raise awareness by sharing this information.

This month’s newsletter includes articles that explore the shortcomings of mammography and risk-reducing concepts for all men and women. Mammograms Miss Up To 75% explores the benefits of pre-diagnostic information supporting earlier detection… and prevention. Mammograms Lead to Unnecessary Mastectomies explores a 20 year study involving 100,000 women that suggests redefining Stage 0 cancers as a “risk factor,” rather than a justification for mastectomy.

Our Daily Bread offers insight into nutrients that support our immune system – our best defense against cancer. And Antiperspirants & Deodorants explores the facts and fiction surrounding the correlation between antiperspirant and cancer, and how to manage perspiration safely and effectively.

On the business front, I am in the process of interviewing candidates for the Administrative Assistant position and hope to fill the position this month. More to follow! Finally – as a reminder, repeat breast imaging is $195.

Until Next Month, All the Best. Enjoy the below articles.

In spite of normal mammograms and ultrasounds, four Thermogram Center clients just informed me that their thermograms led to breast cancer diagnoses. All four clients trusted the interpretations of their Risk Assessing Thermal Imaging and their intuitions: they sought the additional follow up that confirmed the presence of cancer. Despite the fact that mammography could not see their breast cancers, our Advanced Thermography provided early warning of their conditions.

Antiperspirants & Deodorants


Each of us chooses how to manage underarm perspiration and odor. But is our method safe or adding to our breast cancer risk? Let's sort fact from fiction and explore healthy options.

What is sweat? Each person has between two and four million sweat glands in the dermis under the skin’s surface, which also contains nerve endings, hair follicles, blood capillaries, and other structures:

Our Daily Bread


While I am not a nutritionist, many clients ask me about healthy nutrition. After fourteen years of experience with thousands of clients, some of whom are nutritionists, and much research for  personal and professional interests, here is a list of ingredients to consider consuming daily for sustaining nourishment.
Oh - bread is not on the list!

Mammograms Lead to Unnecessary Mastectomies


A new study following 100,000 women for over 20 years indicates that up to 25% of breast cancers diagnosed via mammography were Stage 0 but treated with mastectomies. Since at least 80% of these “pre-cancers” do not lead to active cancers, some doctors are questioning whether Stage 0 diagnoses should continue to be labeled as “pre-cancers” or re-labeled as “risk factors.”
