Today is World Cancer Day.
World Cancer Day is an international day marked on February 4 to raise awareness of cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection, and treatment. It is an opportunity to rally the international community to end the injustice of preventable suffering from cancer.
In this post, you will be learning a few things about breast cancer.
There are different types of cancer as you know, but one that has been recognized as a major source of morbidity and mortality in Nigeria today is Breast Cancer.
As they say prevention is better than cure and there is one way you can actively prevent breast cancer, it is called Breast Self Examination. Self-examination has been what most women relied on first to check for any breast abnormality before going to do a mammogram-that’s for those who can afford it though. But do you know you can bridge that gap with a better offering?
Mammography has been established as the primary method for screening. About 35-45% of non-palpable cancers are detected as micro-calcifications in mammographic studies. However, not every carcinoma is detected in breast cancer screening. Breast density is one of the factors leading to false negative findings in mammography.
Clinical evaluations have shown that Breastlight is capable of detecting lesions of 15 mm and above. The early clinical studies demonstrated that the breast illumination method can detect malignant tumors in women of all ages.
Breastlight was comparable to mammography in correctly confirming absence of cancer. Breastlight detection rate of malignant tumors was between 67% and 73%.
Today, we are offering you Breastlight, it is an innovative device for you to understand their own breast health in the comfort of their own home. It gives you a clear view inside you breast tissue and you can easily spot any abnormalities developing over time. We call this Enlightened Breast Awareness.
You should check your breasts on a regular basis and Breastlight is an excellent way to achieve this.
By using Breastlight you gain an internal view of the breast and can easily see any abnormalities in the form of a black mass/cluster. Many cases these clusters will be harmless or easily treatable but the fact that Breastlight has revealed them to you has now presented you with an opportunity to get proper counsel from your doctor.
