Breastlight is a new health and wellbeing product for women. It helps women notice any changes in their breasts over time.
With Breastlight you get a new view of your breasts. Breastlight shines a harmless red light through the breast tissue so that you can see some of the details inside. That way you can get to know what’s normal for you, spot any changes and hopefully feel more confident that you’re looking after your body the way you’d like to.
What will you see when you use Breastlight?
You will see veins and other blood vessels as dark lines in your breast. These are totally normal.
Over a number of months you will learn what your breasts look like when lit by your Breastlight. This internal view will become as familiar to you as the look and feel of your breasts on the outside.
As with all the aspects of breast awareness the important thing is to look out for any changes.
Breastlight (£ 77.50) is a simple and easy to use product. The key points are:
When you are looking at your breasts with Breastlight you may also see other dark areas. These could look like very dark spots or a shadowy area.
It is possible that these are abnormalities in the breast. If you see these you should go to your GP for advice.
These pictures illustrate what to look out for.
It is important to check out any suspicious signs for your peace of mind. Whether it is a lump that you feel, a strange change in the nipple or a dark shadow seen with Breastlight you should follow up with your doctor.
Remember that not all abnormalities are cancerous. In fact in about nine out of ten cases it will not be a cancer but a minor ailment that can easily be treated.
The key thing is to go and see your Doctor straight away if you notice any changes or abnormalities. Having it checked out as soon as possible could save you needless worry. And if the lump is cancerous then you will have the best possible chance of successful treatment.
Great improvements are being made in the treatment of breast cancer and as a result, the number of breast cancer survivors continues to increase.
