App finds breast cancer – level 1
Two young women develop a special device.
The device can be very useful for all women. The device is called Dotplot. It checks the breasts for cancer. You press it against the breasts. Sound waves study the breasts. An app in your phone says if the breasts are healthy. The app compares the information with earlier information. You can easily notice changes in the breasts.
Some women don’t know how to check their breasts at home. Dotplot can help them.
Breast cancer is a common form of cancer in the world. Many new patients with cancer have breast cancer.
Difficult words: cancer (a serious disease in which a part of the body grows without control), sound wave (energy from sound which can move through things), compare (to look at two or more things and say if they are different).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
