Comment from the Person in Charge of Pink Ribbon Campaign
The Shimadzu Pink Ribbon campaign began in 2017. Under the banner of Breast Cancer Awareness, the Shimadzu emphasizes the importance of regular examinations as well as learning to note the condition of one’s breasts on a daily basis.
Once again this year, we will explain how to perform a breast self-examination through both internal and external events. The best approach is to check yourself from time to time, for example, when taking a bath and noting how your breasts look and feel. Getting an examination immediately if something seems strange will protect you and your loved ones.
