currently, the "mainstream" advice is for women to use thermography in ADDITION to mamography, but many "alternative" practitioners use it INSTEAD of mammography...or use it first and then mammography only if the thermograph is abnormal....Clinical studies have shown thermography to be similarly effective as mamography, without the risk of radiation...and actually, proponents claim thermography detects cancer EARLIER than mammograms, PLUS, it can be used on pregnant women!!, nursing women, women with implants, women with very large/dense breasts...etc....Also...the thermogram does not require squishing or even TOUCHING of the breasts!!!!!
It is somewhat controversial, and there are arguments for and against it...inform yourself!! But for those of you who don't even know it is an option...NOW you know!! Please look into it, even if you decide it is not for you or a scam, etc.....
here is a link to an article on it.
