A Substitute Breast Exam for Mammogram in Los Angeles
There are substitute breast exams that have advantages over the mammogram in Los Angeles. There is no argument about the value of a diagnostic mammogram, the question is are there safer and more accurate breast exams available in Los Angeles? The answer is yes. Should the system invite women, coerce them, threaten then, scare them to come for a mammogram when there is nothing wrong with them? This could be the reason that 50% of American women never have a breast exam. I hear many stories from patients at OC Breast Wellness in Fountain Valley about what their breast exam doctors are saying to them. Women are pestered and pestered year after year to have their annual mammogram. Patients flat out say “NO” but their phone keeps ringing and reminder letters are still mailed to their homes.
Patients fear a diagnosis of breast cancer. If you have breast implants, dense breast or fibrocystic tissue, chances are you will be asked to come back for another mammogram, ultrasound, MRI or even a biopsy. As a patient how do we know if the testing that our doctor prescribes is more than what we need? An extra pill, an additional test or even a second follow up appointment, just to say “all looks good” could be unreasonable. Do we really need this or is the doctor being over cautious? In a way double checking is good but at whose expense? Statistics say 1.3 million American women are over diagnosed each year costing many millions in wasted medical expenses.
Searching for alternatives to standard medical practices has become popular for this reason and many more. OC Breast Wellness has the first tactile technology breast exam with no pain or radiation. The results are immediate and you can have the exam as many times as you want in the first 30 days at NO extra charge. This is because breast tissue changes daily. As estrogen levels increase and decrease throughout the month glandular tissue in the breast increases and decreases. If we find a lump during an exam there is a high probability that a week or two later the lump will decrease in size or even disappear.
As more women in LA learn about SureTouch and weigh the benefits of a breast ultrasound vs mammogram, more women are choosing the breast ultrasound. Most breast exam doctors in women’s health clinics and breast care centers know about this painless and safe alternative to mammograms, yet they are not informing women about it and letting them know there is a place in LA where they can get this alternative breast cancer screening performed.
Chances are, once you learn more about the benefits and advantages there are to the SureTouch breast ultrasound vs mammogram, your fear about being screened for breast cancer will dissipate and you will no longer be among the statistics of women who should get tested but don’t.
