Life/form® Single Breast Examination Trainer
The Life/form® Single Breast Examination Trainer has been designed to be used for the education of breast cancer prevention and breast self-examination. Breast self-examination is one of the most important ways of detecting breast cancer at an early stage, making treatment for the condition more likely to be successful.
The trainer is to be used to demonstrate proper manual examination and evoke discussion of normal and abnormal findings. Soft, life-like simulated breast tissue fits over a sturdy base with molded ribs. The interchangeable lumps and nodules come in various sizes, shapes, and densities, and can be placed within the breast in any combination, which allows for 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, and four hard (red) lumps, including a fixed-wall tumor. Lumps and nodules vary in size from 1-3 cm, are round and irregular in shape, representing both cysts and malignant tumors. Also included are baby powder, soft carry case, and instruction card. Five-year warranty.
