BREAST-i: THE SURE FIRE WAY TO KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR BREAST.
Nigeria is no stranger to the prevalence of breast cancer. Although many agencies and NGO’s are doing their best to increase awareness, many people still carry myths and misconceptions about breast cancer.
The benefits of early detection cannot be overemphasized. This is why regular checks should be done. Screening and early detection will greatly reduce the possibility of a mastectomy (breast surgery where whole or part of the breast is removed). Self-examination is one of the most preached ways of early detection. People are also advised to get regular mammograms (examination where the radiologists check for changes in the breast). Although breast cancer is more prevalent in women, men are also susceptible to breast cancer. Research is ongoing to ensure that we stay on top of this potential killer. This is where BREAST-i comes in.
BREAST-i is a non-diagnostic, easy to use screening device to detect breast cancer. BREAST-i is able to detect abnormalities faster than self-examination because of the light technology.
With BREAST-i, there is no need for tissue compression and due to the light technology used in the creation of this screening tool, it can detect changes in the cells of the breast long before you can feel anything. This greatly increases chances of a cure. The light used in BREAST-i is a red light and the frequency is not harmful to the body. This is the latest gadget to fight the scourge of breast cancer.
