Causes:
● Possibly beginning as early as 12 years old, until 55 years old
● A family history of breast cancer, particularly if the patient’s mother suffered from this disease
● Giving birth to the first child after age 30 may have some impact
● A patient with a history of breast cancer can have a recurrent episode

● Heavy drinking

● Unusual nipple secretions, particularly blood
● A change to the outward appearance of the breast, as in inversions or protrusions
● A change to the skin of the breast, becoming inflamed or festered
● Swollen lymph nodes at the armpit

Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI) Clinical Photos:
Cancer cells are out of control cell growth and because of the unusual proliferation of cells there is a massive nutrition requirement therefore there is an increase of blood vessels surrounding the cancer cells and also the visible part of the breast. Therefore using the system it is very easy to detect the unusual proliferation of blood vessels since this will result in areas of high temperature. The cancer cells can easily be discovered via the blood vessels; if breast heat imaging discovers a spot of unusual low temperature, then this can possibly be a fibrous cyst, because the content of a fibrous cyst it results in a condition of low temperature which allows it to be easily distinguished.
