Suffering Sappho! Check those Mammaries.

Regardless if you are an Amazonian princess, possess the ability to control the weather, are an exceptional cat burglar or just have a tough time controlling your temper…
you are not immune to breast cancer and need to check those little ladies regularly.

That is the direction the Associação da Luta Contra o Cancer (ALCC) in Mozambique has taken with its nerderific new ad campaign promoting breast cancer awareness.

The PSAs consist of four posters featuring Wonder Woman, Catwoman, Storm and the She-Hulk performing their examinations just about anywhere they damn well please. Personally, we don’t know how exactly you perform a thorough check through a metal breast-plate or a leather catsuit, but at least they’re raising awareness and fighting the enemy… in their boobs!

Hit the jump for three more pics…

“When we talk about breast cancer, there’s no women or superwomen. Everybody has to do the self-examination monthly. Fight with us against the enemy and, when in doubt, talk with your doctor.”

  1. I recently heard that self-exams are basically useless because they most often 1) catch non-cancerous cysts, or 2) catch lumps that are already so big that the person already feels pain and has been to the doctor anyway. Self-exams are not very good at catching small lumps which may be cancerous.

  2. Nicole, that is not exactly the case. In 2003, there was a study that set out to find if Breast Self Exams cause more harm than good. This was looked at by the media as the media establishment doubting the effectiveness of BSE’s. The truth is we don’t know for sure how much self exams help long term mortality, as several studies have shown conflicting information. What we do know is that women who are taught to do self exams detect the tumors when their smaller vs someone who doesn’t and discovers it by accident.
