Cancer is the uncontrolled division of mutated cells. Breast cancer ranks second of all forms of cancer which becomes fatal I not treated at an early stage. The earlier the detection of this disease the higher the survival rate of the patients; early detection also avoids disfigurement. In this paper a novel method is proposed to detect breast carcinoma at early stage by producing an active thermogram using FIR radiation from microwave heated breast tissues. This method leads to the early detection of breast cancer due to temperature elevation produced by microwave heating and thermo regulatory action of human body. The phantom models used show this method enhance the temperature difference between the cancer cell and normal breast cell, which would make it possible to diagnose breast carcinoma at early stage.
