We all deserve some degree of peace of mind, especially when it comes to our health or the health of our loved ones.
We live in a world where risks always surround us, and for South African women, the risk of breast cancer depicts a very real fear. What we need is a way to give ourselves the peace of mind that we deserve, or to be able to catch the early symptoms of breast cancer so that the right treatment can be sought as soon as possible, giving the best chance of recovery.
Fortunately, there is a solution that is perfect for this. The Breastlight.
Breast Cancer in South Africa
Here in South Africa, women face a serious risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lives.
In fact, next to skin cancer, breast cancer is the second biggest killer, with 1 in every 27 women being diagnosed with it at some point.
Early Warning Signs
So, one of the best defences against something as prevalent as breast cancer is to be able to diagnose it early one should it occur. Even when it doesn’t occur, simply being able to enjoy the peace of mind of surety. So being able to notice symptoms, or to be able to dispel your worries when you think you have them, is invaluable.
When it comes to diagnosing symptoms yourself, it is essential to understand that you must defer to a medical professional for a solid diagnosis. You should check for potential signs of breast cancer regularly but always get a professional diagnosis.
What you’re looking for are lumps of mass, swelling, irritated skin, pain or retraction in the nipple and discharge. Remember though, that these symptoms may be the result of something else, so be sure to get a medical professional’s opinion.

Being able to perform an examination in the comfort and privacy of your own home can go a long way towards catching the early symptoms of breast cancer. The Breastlight offers an excellent way of doing this with a solution that can be used in your own time, in your own home, and in your own way.
