Bal Gill, a 41-year-old woman, discovered a tumour in her breast when she was enjoying herself during a holiday in Edinburgh.
Gill was trying out a camera which works with body heat in the Camera Obscura, when she spotted something which didn’t look quite right.
Gill made the discovery when she went to purchase a photograph as a souvenir of the experience, and noticed what looked like an unusual stain on her chest.
After doing some research on her own, she convinced herself to go and see a doctor, who confirmed she had the beginning of breast cancer.
Although in this particular case, this type of camera bought to light Gill’s tumour, experts at the Royal College of Radiologists declared one cannot rely totally on this method, adding that the most efficient system for detection of breast cancer is the mammogram test.
