Breast Lump Display (Health Edco)

Emphasising the importance of breast self-awareness through breast self-exam (BSE), clinical exams, and mammography, this display uses lifelike lumps made of BIOLIKE 2™ synthetic material to show the average size of breast lumps that are first discovered by untrained BSE, by occasional BSE, by regular BSE, by a first mammogram, and by regular mammography. Interactive lumps can be picked up and felt. Great for women’s health fairs, clinics, and breast cancer awareness events.
