In this modern era of rushing around and doing many tasks, I think it is very important to take the time to care for yourself. As I have got older, I have realised that taking care of my health is an absolute must. I think that you are in the perfect position to know as much as there is to know about your own body and that checking for any changes now and again can help you to know if something requires you and your doctor’s attention. The earlier any problems are detected, the better.
Breast Health Awareness
I remember being shown how to check my breasts during a health education lesson at school, all those years ago. Knowing how your breasts feel at different times during the month and knowing what your own ‘normal’ is can help to identify any problems that may arise. Being aware that any dimpling, redness, soreness, discharge, lumps and bumps that are not usually present can indicate that there may be a problem. Checking breasts regularly can help to identify problems early so that you can ask your doctor about them. Often, it can be the case of the doctor putting your mind at ease about a suspected issue but if not; your GP can refer you for further investigations.
How Breastlight Can Help
Breastlight is a handheld tool, made in the UK, which can be used alongside your regular self-checking routine. It can be used by women or men but can be particularly useful for menopausal or postmenopausal women. For those with generally lumpy breasts, this can also be helpful to check if there are any areas that you may need to ask your doctor about. Breastlight health screening device works by shining a light through the breast tissue. It can help to distinguish between normal breast tissue and areas where blood vessels are present that could indicate a possible abnormality. If you suspect that there are any abnormalities, it is important to contact your GP at the earliest opportunity. Using Breastlight can be a good tool to use alongside your usual self-examination routine. You can purchase your own Breastlight from Amazon.
