Clinical studies suggest that one in eight American women will develop breast cancer during her lifetime. Though there’s no way to prevent breast cancer entirely, investing in a breast cancer screening can alert you to problems early and increase your chances of beating the disease. The team of licensed tribal providers at Turtle Healing Band Clinic in Las Vegas, Nevada, regularly provides breast cancer screenings to women using cutting-edge screening techniques. To make an appointment for your breast cancer screening, call the office or request an appointment online today.
Breast cancer screening is a preventive measure used to determine a woman’s risk of breast cancer. Aside from skin cancers, breast cancer is the most common type of cancer that affects women.
In its early stages, breast cancer doesn’t always present obvious symptoms. As a result, you might be sick and not even realize it. Breast cancer screenings work to detect cancer early, so it’s easier to treat.
Generally, all women between the ages of 50-74 should get a breast cancer screening at least once every two years. If you’re between the ages of 40-49 and have a family history of breast cancer, talk with your Turtle Healing Band Clinic provider about starting breast cancer screening earlier.
At Turtle Healing Band Clinic, the team offers two types of breast cancer screenings.
GcMAF is a type of vitamin D-binding protein that helps support your immune system. If you have cancer cells or tumors in your body, they release a protein called Nagalase. Over time, Nagalase blocks your immune system from boosting GcMAF. This weakens your immune system and inhibits your body from adequately fighting cancer cells.
During a Nagalase breast cancer screening, your Turtle Healing Band Clinic provider draws a sample of your blood. After drawing your blood, the team works to detect the presence of Nagalase in your blood, which may indicate breast cancer.
AMAS stands for anti-malignin antibody in serum. During an AMAS blood test, your Turtle Healing Band Clinic provider draws a sample of your blood and evaluates it for the presence of a substance called malignin. Clinical research suggests malignin is a marker for any type of cancer. If the team detects malignin in your blood, it indicates an increased risk of cancer.
To determine the type of breast cancer screening for you, make an appointment with the caring team of certified tribal healers at Turtle Healing Band Clinic. Following a physical exam, review of your medical history, and discussion of your symptoms, the team makes recommendations that align with your individual needs.
Both the Nagalase and AMAS blood tests have proven effective. As soon as you receive your results, the team can develop a treatment plan that lowers your risk of further complications while improving your quality of life.
