A patient in November of 2015 had an abnormal thermogram. She has a strong family history of breast cancer. She was a TH3 in her right breast.  This is called the “fence sitter”, it is not normal but not abnormal.  This lady researched cancer and decided to take matters into her own hands.  She did the Budwig diet, ate organic, ate broccoli sprouts, used the essential oils Frankincense, and drank Essiac tea.  You can see the before and after views of her thermograms.  She was TH3 on the right breast in November 2015 and is a TH1 in March 2016.

BACKGROUND: Two (2) replicate sets of three (3) high-resolution radiometric infrared images were made of the anterior and the right and left lateral aspects of the thorax to feature the breasts. The second set of images was made immediately after the patient withdrew both hands from a one-minute immersion in cold (approx. 11°C) water. This procedure is a deliberate and simple dynamic functional challenge that anticipates the adaptive constriction of normal blood vessels with consequent cooling of the skin. The challenge is intended to differentially indicate regions of unregulated hyperemia that are reliably and proximately associated with solid cancerous neoplasm. The results of this challenge are coupled with specific features of vascular configuration, quantitative thermal differentials and, where available, time-based evolution of thermal patterns and levels to provide a multi-parametric risk assessment for malignant breast disease. The patient’s related history includes a 1989 bilateral prothetic augmentation, the current administration of estrogenic hormonal medication and a familial and a personal risk factor(s) for breast cancer. The patient’s related history includes ‘discolored’ discharge from the right and left nipples as a symptom(s) associated with breast disease.

ANALYSIS: The infrared images of the right and left breasts demonstrate essentially symmetrical thermal patterns and emission levels that do not present significantly hyperthermic focal patterns; complex or significantly hyperthermic vascular-like patterns; asymmetric whole-breast hyperthermia or asymmetric physical deformation (please refer to the 07 March 2016 Frontal Thorax thermogram above). The peri-areolar areas of the right and left breasts demonstrate essentially symmetric patterns and emission levels that are not significantly hyperthermic. The post-challenge images demonstrate symmetric and adaptive attenuation of the emission levels from all of the thermal features of the right and left breasts. Comparative analysis with the prior study demonstrates significant decreases in the extent, caliber and relative emission levels of a vascular-like pattern in the caudal aspect of the right breast.

RISK ASSESSMENT: Quantitative analysis of the infrared images does not indicate any thermology signs or criteria that establish risk for malignant disease or an association with any significant pathology of the right or left breast.

SUMMARY: Normal thermology; graded TH-1 for the right breast and TH-1 for the left breast. Annual thermology restudy is recommended for comparative analysis.
