Thermo instead of Mammo?

I’ve been having annual mammograms since I was 40 and I’m now 58 – that’s a lot of radiation!  And now I’ve had radiation for thyroid cancer.  Who knew that was gonna happen?  So you can understand why I’m good with NOT having annual mammograms anymore.  But what’s the alternative? Studies show that a breast thermogram identifies precancerous or cancerous cells earlier BEFORE THE FORMATION OF A TUMOR, produces clearer results, and doesn’t hurt the body.  Even pregnant and nursing women can have thermography and it’s a good choice for young, denser breasts.  And IT DOESN’T HURT and it’s a good test if a mammogram “finds something.”  What’s the catch?  Insurance often doesn’t pay for this $300 test, so you may have to foot the bill yourself.  Let’s work on making this test the norm, shall we?
