I AM SURE THAT MANY WOULD AGREE… Men are less inclined to seek medical assistance unless they perceive that there is a serious problem. The result? Often conditions are only detected at an advanced stage. Sadly at that point, treatment options that are more invasive and also more expensive. Thermographic scans are comparatively less expensive than some other screening methods and provide excellent screening for early detection of Testicular Cancer. Thermal Scans on the testicles, assist in determining where potential problems are looming before they reach an advanced stage.
Not just for the older men.
While it may be less common than other cancers, it is unusual as it is more likely to occur in younger men.
The good news is that Thermal imaging can assist in effectively screening for the early detection of testicular cancer and is non-invasive, pain free and affordable.
