  • It is really great that you are encouraging women to have a thorough examination done of their breasts; but breast x-ray (mammogram) is not the only avenue, nor is it the answer!!!There is new technology available now that is totally non-invasive and does not use radiation to image the breast. What is even more exciting is that unlike a breast x-ray it works on all breasts not just on women over 40. The big problrm with a breast x-ray (besides the harmful doses of radiation) is that they are reasonably ineffective on younger women due to them having a much denser breast tissue. This means a higher number of false negatives and false positives are returned.The new technology is FDA approved and is Sensitive, Accurate & Pain-Free and is suitable for women of all ages. The other great thing is that it can be done by your own family doctor when you have your normal check up. It is also a proceedure that is significantly cheaper than a breast x-ray.Please see for yourself at; http://suretouch.com.au

  • Thank you for this information. I am still experiencing severe pain in both sides due to quadrantectomy and segmentental wle., 3.3/4 years and 21 months ago, & cannot tolerate any form of pressure e.g. mammograms. My protocol screening is extremely overdue, due to this, and other factors. I wonder if the finest Cancer Centre in the whole of the UK, has this device for people like me who have a neurological disease? I am going to contact them again. Thank you once again for sharing this information. Suffice to say, I am very disillusioned and despondent that I even had to have these surgeries, as, having researched BC for 2 years and 10 months, and purchased my medical records, I have discovered mistakes made, and my faith in Hospital Consultants has nearly been obliterated. Advice to anyone reading this - buy your mammos, learn how to read them, see if they are dense, ask for ultrasound, or better still for your cancer centre to invest in this device before you accept a doctor's diagnosis that you DO NOT have breast cancer or pre-cancerous lesions. Mine were visible in 1993 and 1994 and no action was taken, nor was I informed. I cannot tolerate the cancer drugs, and life has been pure and utter ***l due to unresolved pain, and loss of faith and independence, infections and fatigue. Good Luck to all. Believe in yourself and teach yourself Professional Breast Examination, downloaded from the web. That is how I found my second cancers. Trust Yourself.
