SO WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
Apart from the pain, and maybe having to miss a game, or having your performance affected, it has been shown that impact bruising to the female breast results in the formation of hard nodules/ lumps in the breast tissue. While not cancerous, these lumps are difficult to differentiate from breast cancer. This may lead to the person suffering a lot of stress and having many tests before Breast cancer can be ruled out. In addition, although some variation in breast size is normal and is common in most women, injury to the breast of premenarchal girls has been shown to result in asymmetrical breast growth (Janse et al 2008), which may cause embarrassment and disrupt self esteem. For this reason, protection against impact in contact sports is important for those girls whose breasts are still developing and where impact is particularly painful.
It becomes obvious that the female breasts NEED GOOD SUPPORT to minimise breast movement during running and jumping, and be adequately PROTECTED FROM IMPACT in contact sports.
