Additional Advice

Avoid using Breastlight during and after pregnancy

Pregnancy and lactation enriches the blood supply to breast tissue and enlarges the breast which may cause a false reading using Breastlight.

It is best not to use Breastlight during pregnancy and you should wait at least 6 months after giving birth, and longer if still breast feeding, before using it.

Using Breastlight if you have had treatment for breast cancer

If you had a lumpectomy, you will be able to see the rest of your breast normally with Breastlight but there may be a thickening area over your scar tissue. This may mean an increased supply of blood capillaries to the scar area which could look darker with Breastlight.

If you had a partial removal of your breast, you can still use Breastlight on the remaining tissue.

If you had your breast removed and reconstructed, you will not be able to use Breastlight, as it only works on breast tissue. A total mastectomy will remove all the breast tissue; reconstruction uses implants and skin graft tissue.
