Active cancer cells double in number every 90 days on average.

Thermography screenings put the power in your hands, providing the opportunity to detect abnormal cellular changes incredibly early, from within the first year all the way through to when a tumor becomes dense enough to be seen with mammography (normally about 8 years).

This early detection of change can lead to earlier diagnosis and better treatment options and, most importantly, gives patients and their healthcare practitioners a chance to intervene at an early stage, when preventative treatment is still a possibility.

Important Points:

  • Thermography can detect cancerous cells after a single doubling.
  • Mammography cannot generally detect tumors smaller than 1 centimeter, which equates to about 32 doublings.
  • 40 doublings generally considered lethal.
  • Very early detection is associated with incredibly high (98%) survival rates.
  • By the time tumors are detectable by mammography, average survival rate has declined to 23%.
  • The possibility for early intervention makes thermographic screenings an essential complement to traditional mammography.
