Breast Cancer Risk

Normal Breast Thermogram

Normal Breast Thermogram

 

 

  • Symmetric (same on both sides) breast patterns and temperatures
  • No neovascularity (NO new blood vessels) pattern
  • No change in temperature differentials over time
  • No focal points of heat (NO hyperthermia)
  • Symmetrical axillary (lymph nodes under the arms) temperatures

 

 


Breast Cancer Risk: Early Detection

Breast Cancer Risk: Early Detection

 

 

  • Asymmetric (different on each side) breast pattern in right upper breast
  • Asymmetric Hyperthermia (too much heat) Right breast > Left
  • Increasing asymmetric pattern and hyperthermia over time (every 3 months)
  • Axillary (lymph nodes under the arms) temperatures stable for now
    (early disease process)

 

 


Cancer Risk :  patient presenting with mass in left upper breast

Cancer Risk – patient presenting with mass in left upper breast

 

  • Asymmetric (different on each side) breast pattern in left upper breast
  • Hypothermic (cold , green color) round area surrounded by hyperthermia (hot, red color)
  • Neovascularity (new blood vessel formation) surrounding green oval mass left upper breast
  • Axillary (lymph nodes under the arms) temperatures stable for now (metastasis less likely)

 

 


Cancer Risk with Possible Metastasis

Cancer Risk with Possible Metastasis

 

 

  • Asymmetric (different on each side) lymph nodes hyperthermic
    (too much heat) R > L
  • Hyperthermia with focal points of heat in right breast
  • Hyperthermia right breast > left breast
