Breastlight Allows Women to View Breast Abnormalities
Self-examination is the front line in a woman's battle against breast cancer. Women that regularly examine their breasts greatly improve their chances for successful treatment should any abnormalities appear. Sadly, many women do not know how to conduct a proper self-exam, so we were intrigued when we saw this device, designed to simplify the process, on ShinyShiny.tv.
The Breastlight (available for £77.50, or about $114) is a simple little gadget. Once you've applied the included lubricant to your breast and placed the device under it, the gadget passes a powerful red light through the breast tissue, itself (if you've ever placed a flashlight up to your hand, you get the idea). As the Breastlight illuminates the breast tissue, you can visually scan your breast for any growths or abnormalities. It is recommended that, while using the Breastlight, you remain in a dark room so you can see more clearly. A mirror can also be helpful in viewing the underside of the breast and other difficult-to-see areas.
With or without the Breastlight, self-examination remains an essential tool in the fight against breast cancer. It's just that this device looks like it could give you a better view of the opponent. [From: ShinyShiny]
