My bad? No. My reason for posting about the new technology was simply to nourish readers' hope by sharing an exciting new technology being investigated at reputable hospitals. I did not even remotely suggest readers fly to Israel to gain entry into trials of this new technology instead of pursuing their routine screening with mammography.
This highlights a vital point in Healthy Survivorship:
You don't need to research everything.
As a Healthy Survivor, you only need to do research if news causes you to:
- Lose faith in your current medical care
- Want to discuss these new technologies with your healthcare team as an option in your care
I was about to add a third bullet: "Consider pursuing them without your healthcare team's knowledge." But, of course, Healthy Survivors don't pursue any tests and treatments without first discussing them with their healthcare team.
