Breast self-examination is an important way of detecting cancer at an early, more treatable stage. The Life/form® Single Breast Examination Trainer has been designed for use in education in breast cancer prevention and breast self-examination.
Use the trainer to demonstrate proper manual examination and discussion of normal and abnormal findings.
Soft, life-like simulated breast tissue fits over a sturdy base with molded ribs. Interchangeable lumps and nodules of various sizes, shapes, and densities can be placed within the breast in any combination, offering a complete educational experience. Reddened peau d’orange area on skin represents inflammatory breast cancer (IBC). Dimpling indicates invasive disease.
The Life/form® Single Breast Examination Trainer includes:
- Four soft (pink) nodules that represent normal tissue
- Three medium (white) lumps
- Four hard (red) lumps, including a fixed-wall tumor.
- Baby Powder
- Soft Carry Case
- Instruction Card
- Five-year Warranty
Lumps and nodules vary in size from 1-3 cm, are round and irregular in shape, representing both cysts and malignant tumors.
