Breast Cancer Statistics

  • Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, and the risk increases with age.1
  • Current research indicates that 1 in every 8 women in the US will get breast cancer.1
  • The single most important marker of high risk for developing breast cancer is an abnormal Thermal Image, 10 times more significant than a family history of the disease.2
  • Out of 3 million women in the U.S. living with breast cancer only 2 million are diagnosed while 1 million do not even know they have breast cancer.4
  • Angiogenesis, or new blood vessel formation, is necessary to sustain the growth of a tumor. Digital Infrared Imaging may be the first signal that such a possibility is developing.2
  • About 40 replications or doublings of the breast cancer cells create a potentially lethal burden, yet mammography cannot detect a mass until 25-30 such doublings have already occurred.3 By this time, cancer is far less treatable.
  • A dime size tumor can take 8 to 10 years to grow. Breast Thermography can be the first indication that a tumor is developing.2
