Why MammaCare is Effective

This is custom heading element

Science advances breast exams

It was once commonly believed that breast examination skill could be acquired by reading pamphlets or watching videos. But physical, self and clinical breast exams depend on the sense of touch not vision.  To be effective, our fingers must learn and practice what to feel for. Learning to perform breast examination accurately requires training,  practice and verification skills.

 MammaCare employs technology and  engineered breast models containing  tactually accurate, fibrous breast tissues and tiny hidden tumors as small as <.05cm that reproduce the feeling of breast cancers.

Just how effective is MammaCare? The chart below shows comparative sizes of lumps found by various procedures or practices and studies.

Tumor Size Discovered by Breast Examination Method

2.5 cmThe average size lump found by clinicians and women occasionally practicing conventional BSE [2].
2.0 cmThe average size lump found by clinicians and women regularly practicing conventional BSE [3].
2.0 cmThe commonly accepted lower limit for clinical breast examination (CBE) [4].
0.5 cmThe size routinely found by clinicians or women practicing MammaCare [5].
0.3 cmThe probable lower limit of lump size detectable by clinicians or women practicing MammaCare expertly [5].
In order to achieve these levels of sensitivity, our fingers must learn the feel of normal fibrous breast texture and any changes such as lumps or tissue thickening that might require attention. MammaCare accomplishes this with the aid of a model that is so lifelike, it has been used to calibrate mammography machines.

After learning and practicing tactile skills on MammaCare breast models, women and clinicians are able to perform a thorough and proficient breast examination. No examination, mammogram or image of the breast can assure detection of cancer.
