MammaCare Method of Clinical Breast Examination

The MammaCare Method of Clinical Breast Examination (CBE) is the result of research that identified five essential examination techniques for performing a standardized clinical breast examination.

  1. PALPATION – Use the pads of the middle three fingers to make three dime-size circles at each spot you palpate.
  2. PRESSURES – Make each dime-size circle at increasing levels of pressure (light, medium, deep) to examine tissue at different depths.
  3. PATTERN – Follow the vertical strip search pattern, palpating tissue in down and up lines, to provide the most thorough coverage of the breast.
  4. PERIMETER – Examine all areas of the chest where breast cells are located, not only the portion of the breast that fits into a bra.
  5. POSITIONS – Examine the breast tissue in two different positions to evenly distribute tissue against the chest wall.

Each student will learn the MammaCare Method of CBE by observing proper examination techniques through video demonstrations and interactive palpation exercises using two breast models containing lifelike breast lumps.

Training Kit

The see-through teaching model allows the student to see what they are feeling as they learn to discriminate between normal nodularity and suspicious breast lumps. 

The opaque breast model allows the student to practice detecting suspicious breast lumps hidden within complex tissue.

Breast Exam Skills Check-Off

During each breast model exam, students will record the location of each lump they find. After completing the exam, they will be presented with a visual report of the lumps they found (sensitivity) and those that were missed (specificity).
