Tampa, FL – Sept 17th, 2021 – My Lumps has officially announced the release of the first-ever digital mammary self-examination tracking tool. My Lumps is a mobile application that provides a tool for women to annotate, log and track their mammary self-exams and establish a baseline of what their mammaries normally feel like. It also creates a simple repeatable process for conducting mammary self-examinations by providing a visual representation of the mammary glands, which allows users to map where they feel lumps and annotate descriptive information about those lumps.
My Lumps was founded in 2021 by Petrayris Del Angel after she received abnormal results from her mammogram. Although her lump was considered benign, her doctor told her to “keep an eye on it.” She realized that the only way to keep an eye on it would be to memorize every self-examination that she did. She considered this approach insufficient and began searching for tools to help. After tons of research, it was easy to see that there is a trove of information on mammary cancer awareness, but no tool to aid in the tracking of those self-examinations to make sure any changes do not go unnoticed.
This was when the My Lumps mobile app was born. The My Lumps app was designed by women for women to increase mammary awareness in an easy and efficient way by providing a place for women to annotate and track lumps and abnormalities felt during mammary self-exams. The main benefit is that the application provides a method to map, annotate and track each woman’s mammary anatomy based on what they feel, increasing mammary awareness.
During a recent interview, the founder of My Lumps, Petrayris Del Angel was quoted as saying, “My Lumps was born out of my own need and inability to identify and track changes in my mammaries over time. By the age of thirty, I had two mammograms and an ultrasound where a mass was found but determined to be a non-cancerous cyst by the radiologist, but my doctor told me to keep an eye on it and to come back if I noticed any changes.” She went on to say, “I struggled to understand how I was supposed to keep an eye on this lump and how I would be able to determine if there was a change.”
My Lumps takes mammary cancer awareness a step further by providing women with a tool that helps them easily track, learn, and understand their mammaries, while providing something tangible and actionable for women to follow when performing mammary self-exams.
