Dr. Majors on Mammograms

3 Comments 05 October 2015

Mammograms

What if you didn’t do a Mammogram?
What if you didn’t do Chemotherapy?
What if you didn’t do Radiation?
What if you didn’t do Surgery?
What would happen? Would you die sooner? Would you not find your Cancer sooner? or….
If you did have a mammogram, find a problem and begin chemotherapy, radiation and surgery, would it extend your life at all or would you DIE sooner?

Time magazine PROVES once and for all the questions you have been asking for years…
Here are some highlights from the article written in the October 12, 2015 issue of Time magazine:
*Experts know that MANY breast cancers are, in the apt medical term, INDOLENT- slow growing tumors that may never cause symptoms let alone hasten a woman’s death.
*Dr. Otis Brawley, chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society states, “If you look at the science, it’s not the case” that- if a patient gets breast cancer, it’s a failure of not getting a mammogram.
*No one is suggesting that women stop getting mammograms, but the experts think it’s important to be honest that IT’S IMPERFECT TECHNOLOGY.

Here is what the New England Journal of Medicine, Harvard and Dartmouth found out about Mammograms:
*In another study the reduction in mortality as a result of mammogram screening was so small as to be nonexistent — a mere 2.4 deaths per 100,000 person-years were spared. [Kalager M, Zelen M, Langmark F, Adami HO. Effect of screening mammography on breast-cancer mortality in Norway. N Engl J Med. 2010;363(13):1203-1210. doi: 10.1056/NEJMoa1000727.]
*Researchers from Harvard and Dartmouth found after analyzing cancer registry data from 16 million women in 547 counties across the United States, they found “no evident correlation between the extent of screening and 10-year breast cancer mortality.” The researchers concluded that mammograms primarily find small, typically harmless, or non-lethal tumors, leading to widespread over diagnosis. [Harding C, Pompei F, Burmistrov D et al. Breast cancer screening, incidence, and mortality across US counties. JAMA. July 06, 2015. doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2015.3043]

Hmm? Get a mammogram that’s:
1. imperfect technology
2. finds cancer that is slow growing, harmless or non-lethal
3. creates over diagnosis so chemotherapy, radiation and surgery which is UNNECESSARY are performed
4. is a high level of radiation CONTRIBUTING to cancer
5. no evident correlation in breast cancer mortality over 10 years

Am I saying do nothing? Absolutely not!

All testing is early detection of the disease already existing but it’s better to know early at least but a mammogram is way too controversial and minimally reliable compared to other testing.
If it’s done right and read right, breast thermography is what my mom, wife and patients do…are they controversial? yes, because they don’t know how to read them correctly, it is measuring heat and blood supply and vascular supply etc.
Find the right places who do breast thermography and have a radiologist who reads them and than set up protocols if they see any concerns. Set up protocols to fix, then rerun in 90 days…that is prevention and these tests don’t cause more cancer…

Can a mammogram find cancer? It’s possible and it has and they have saved some lives, but I don’t want to wait until it’s big enough to find it, plus it finds too many false positives creating over diagnosis and dangerous and deadly unnecessary treatments…

    why do you feel that a radiologist read the thermography reports and not a board certified thermologist? I have never heard of this? If so, where do you recommend people find this type of office?
    I know of very reputable entities that pride themselves in practicing thermography correctly. Look up IACT.
    Thoughts?

    Thank you for giving women the real scoop.

    Thanks for your time and dedication to this important topic. I have been incessantly researching this as well since being OVERdiagnosed with DCIS in 2010. I created a blog to share my journey and provide women with better options and not fall victim to the terrible scare tactics and extremely radical treatments. Thank goodness I did not let them take my breast or bomb my perfectly healthy body with radiation for 7 weeks. I did unfortunately allow a needle biopsy and 3 “exploratory” surgeries because the mammogram set off the alarms as if it could be INVASIVE and possibly kill me. Mammograms are completely ineffective and dangerous.The US should do like Switzerland and ban them! It is an injustice to women!! Thank you again for highlighting this issue. http://www.dcis411.com
