Gunze would like to improve breast cancer patients’ clinical outcome!
Breast cancer involves malignant tumors that form within the breasts and is increasing year by year in Japan. It’s projected that as many as 92,200 Japanese women had breast cancer in 2019*.
If you have breast cancer, surgeries include mastectomies, to remove the entire breast, and breast-conserving surgeries, to partially remove the breast. Many patients have various problems, such as difficulty in maintaining their balanceand tingling of mastectomy surgical scars. Gunze remains committed to improving patients’ clinical outcome in collaboration with the QOL Research Center, Medical Department, and Apparel Department.
