(AP Wirepholo) Solid case for new methods of diagnosing breast cancer OTTAWA (CP) Doctors and medical journals, usually cautious about "enthusiast i c physicians" and "pet" theories, are changing attitudes toward three relatively new methods for diagnosing cancer of the breast.

For his article, Mr. Geekia interviewed Dr. D. V. McFar- lane of Toronto Westdrn Hospi- tal Mammography, which in- involves x-rojs of the breast tissue, can help find many cancels in such early stages lhal a lump cannot be felt, Mr. (leckio reports. With thermography. w h i c h provides a pictorial representa- lion of the heat given off by the skin surface of the breast, doc- tors can find cancer areas be- cause these give off more heat than normal tissue. Xerography is a variation o( mammography in which spe- cial charge coated plates are used. The new methods are "not substitutes for careful physical examination, but are comple- Mr. Geekie said. "Lesions detectable by one method may be missed by an- other." because Women still risk pregnancy through fear and ignorance TORONTO (CP) "I didn't think you could get pregnant if you did it, with your eyes a pregnant teen-age girl said. It's this kind of misinforma- tion, and the [act some sex- ually active women who don't want cliildrcn (ail to use birth control, that indicate the pill, on the market for 10 years has not reduced unplanned conceptions. In 1071, there were 10000 therapeutic abortions in On- tario alone, more than double the 1970 figure. Despite the availability of birth-control information and the introduction of foolproof contraceptives, the statistics show that many young women risk pregnancy. They do so for a number of reasons. Often abortion counsellors are told by single pregnant girls that they were afraid to phone familv were sure Hie doctor would phone thrir didn't have any other source of information or birth-control pill prescriptions. "By and says Dr. David Collins, director of the Toronto Free Youth Clinic, "doctors are prudish, rigid and conservative. "The advice they offer to a abstain from sually doesn't work.1' SEEK TO PL'HGE FEARS Abortimis are frequent, too, among newly immigrated Ca- nadians. A nurse with the As- sociation for the Repeal of Ca- nadian Abortion Laws says the women are outside the mainstream of Canadian life and don't know how to obtain advice or contraceptives. Many teen-age girls simply believe they'll escape preg- nancy. Often girls convince themselves they're immune to pregnancy. Others see prepar- ing for sex by planning birth control use as a premeditated "immoral" act. Psychiatrists say they be- lieve that young girls who fear both sex and pregnancy purge their fears by engaging in sex without protection. Dr. Martin Wolfish of the Hospital for Sick Children calls it counter-phobic reaction. He says you force yourself to do something you fear to prove you're not afraid. Dr. Wolfish also describes a sub-group among single preg- nant girls who have an "unwed mother syndrome." Often from emotionally de- prived backgrounds, they just want a baby to love and to love them.

The lock of birth-control in- formation among young girls is attributed to prudishness on the part of family doctors by specialists working in abor- tion and dissemination of birth-control information. DOCTORS RELUCTANT Phyllis Curry, of the tion law repeal association, says nearly all doctors she's worked v.ith "srjuinned un- comfortably when they had to engage in frank sex talk with patients." Research by a U.S. psychia- trist indicalcd that doctors themselves often develop per- sonal sexual problems. Dr. Wolfish suggests that a patient's query for advice "re- minds a doctor of his own sex- ual troubles. How can lie pro- vide guidance when he's con- fused Dr. Wolfish also says he be- lieves most family doctors are loo busy to give effective birth-control counselling. The only solution to un- wanted pregnancies, espe- c i a 11 y among misinformed teen-agers, many specialists believe, is an all-out public education campaign in tho media and innovative courses in schools. They 'also feel there should be special clinics for young persons. "Teen-agers are reluctant to go to a doctor's office or to an adult clinic when they want contraceptive informa- nnr i-orisl worker cx- plalnrd. ''Special clinics .should he staffed by people have an empathy for young people."
