What to look out for

When looking at your breast whilst using the Breastlight, you will immediately notice dark black lines. These are your veins and are 100% normal. That which you should lookout for is dark shadowy areas.

It is possible that these are abnormalities in the breast. If you see these you should go to your GP for advice.

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.


Angiogenesis around a small malignancy


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.

Why should I check out any dark areas?
In the early stages of some types of malignancies there is an increase in the blood flow to the area. New blood vessels are formed in a process called angiogenesis.

This increase in the number of small vessels may look like a dark shadow or dark area when Breastlight is used.
