“The number of women who die from this disease will continue to increase if nothing is done to provide them with a true early warning system. With breast thermography, women of all ages are given hope and a true early detection edge in the battle against breast cancer.”
These were the words of Dr. Gracie Chukwu, the Managing Director, Houston Holistic Health Company Limited. And I align with it very much.
The World health Organization has made it clear that cancer is the second leading cause of morbidity and death in the world, while the number of new cases of the disease is anticipated to increase by 70% in the next two decades. Well, we can still that as it stands now, Nigeria has the highest cancer death rate in Africa with about 80,000 out of 100,000 diagnosed Nigerians dying annually from the disease.
This is why I think Nigerians are ready to embrace any thing that would take us out of this misery and stop the cankerworm. Well, as usual, technology being the future of our country has come to our rescue.
Breast thermography make appropriate use of computerized Infrared imaging to detect heat changes in a woman’s breast and other parts of the body, and this can serve as an early indication of possible tumors and other abnormalities.
Abnormal heat pattern is one of the earliest known sign of a forming cancer. Blood circulation and metabolism are higher around growing tumors since these cells are multiplying and growing rapidly.
Thermography can detect the increase in skin temperature in these locations using specialized infrared cameras. The test is also said to be able to signal looming cancer in women, 10 years before any other test.
So ladies, what are you still waiting for as technology has come for your rescue, again.
