Our women’s health services are integral to ou r practice and include bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, nutritional counseling, and thermography scans. Dr. Elizabeth Carter is especially passionate about breast cancer prevention.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women and the risk increases with age. The risk is also higher in women whose close relatives have had the disease, women without children, and those that have had their first child after age 30. However, every woman is at risk of developing breast cancer. Current research indicates that one in every eight women in the U.S. will get breast cancer in her lifetime.
With the prevalence of breast cancer in our population, we must use every means possible to detect cancers when there is the greatest chance of survival. Thermography is another useful diagnostic tool, to be used along with mammography, ultrasound, MRI, biopsy, or other tools your doctor deems necessary. It is a heat scan of the breast tissue that uses no radiation and involves no painful manipulation.
Signs of pre-cancerous tissue or early stage cancers that are too small to be found by physical examination or a mammogram can be indicated by a disruption of heat or blood flow under the skin on a thermography scan.
Using tools such as thermography, a patient can synthesize information about many different aspects of her general health to form a clearer picture of her breast health. The greatest single risk factor for breast cancer is lifetime exposure of the breasts to estrogen. Breast thermography plays a significant role in prevention by warning women if they have excess estrogen activation in their breasts, facilitating their ability to pursue preventative measures.
“It may be bio-identical, but it won’t help you if you don’t do it right. A knowledgeable doctor who can educate you makes all the difference. Be involved in your health. You have to live what you learn to stay healthy.” ~ Sherry N., Berwyn, PA
