It's Your Life..take charge, there are options..

Ending in sight for Invasive Treatments…

Medical research has shown we’re moving closer to non- invasive tests and treatments, moving away from radiation-heavy screening and biopsies, so get to know your options.

The FDA has recently approved the use of ABUS ( Automated Breast Untraound System) this is a life saver for women with dense breast tissue and 40% of women in the U.S are in this category. Mammograms are useless in detecting tumors in dense tissue, so a woman is four to six times more likely to develop Breast Cancer , however, it has been proven "ABUS " doubles the rate of early detection for women with dense breast tissue , thus early detection can mean a survival rate of 96 %. The FDA only approved this for women with dense breasts, although many Physicians feel this is a bit redundant because ABUS can screen tissue of any type.

This procedure would eliminate painful breast compression , eliminating radiation exposure, and a more thorough exam . This approval however does not override the fact women still need to self-examine their breasts on a regular basis, and visit their OB/GYN regularly. It only takes a physician only about five seconds to examine and determine tissue density, making ABUS a much easier procedure.

There are also various Blood tests that are now being used by many Physicians, including tests eliminating some invasive testing for Cancer.

Talk to your Physician requesting information of the options that are available to you, and his approach or thoughts on this matter.

Remember it only takes a few minutes out of your day to add years to your call your Physician and schedule your yearly physical today..

Hope this information was useful, I look forward to hearing comments.

      Such neccessary precautions to catch breast cancer at earliest stages.My aunt had breast cancer and nobody knew until it was too late.Husbands can also do their part and seeing that their wife goes regularly and if any changes occur get check ups immediately.

      Our health is so important and often one fails to notice any changes or just to lazy to go and have a check up. You have sent a clear message thanks for the valuable information.
