Breast Check Kit - Let's talk Breast Health!
Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. In 2015, it's estimated that just under 30% of newly diagnosed cancers in women will be breast cancers. According to the American Cancer Society.....
About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
I love that Plexus continues to be a company dedicated to breast health and when it comes to breast cancer early detection is the key.
According to the Susan Komen Research there is a 99% relative survival rate for early stage breast cancer.
This is our only medical device. It has been featured on the television show The Doctors.....
The Breast Chek Kit! (The first product Plexus ever created!)
A breast chek kit consists of two micro-thin layers of polyurethane with a non-toxic lubricant sealed in between. When the breast chek is placed on the breast, the bottom layer gently adheres to the skin and remains stable allowing the upper layer to slide freely underneath your fingertips. As the upper layer slides freely over the bottom layer, friction is greatly reduced. This results in what is called ‘sensory touch magnification.’ Or, in other words, your sense of touch is greatly improved, thereby improving the effectiveness of all breast self exams you do as part of your breast health program. You can even feel a grain of sand!
