The new tumor-detecting bra was capable of identifying 92.1 percent of tumors correctly

Women could soon check for breast cancer 24 hours a day, right out in public -- and no, fellas, not via physical examination.

A new bra can detect cancerous tumors in the breast long before the traditional mammogram screening can. The bra is called the Breast Tissue Screening Bra and was developed by First Warning Systems.

Women can wear the bra just like a normal one they'd buy from the store. It fits comfortable under everyday clothing and looks like a normal bra, but it certainly doesn't act like a normal bra.

It checks for tumors in the breast by measuring small changes in skin temperature over time that can indicate a tumor. A sensor in the front of the bra collects this data and sends it to the Internet, where the user can view results daily.

According to tests, which included over three clinical trials, the new tumor-detecting bra was capable of identifying 92.1 percent of tumors correctly. A traditional mammogram only has an accuracy of about 70 percent. Furthermore, the new bra can detect a tumor as many as six years before a mammogram can.

First Warning Systems is looking to commercialize the bra in Europe in 2013 and hopefully in the U.S. in 2014, depending on Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval. A bra like this could not only detect tumors early enough for treatment, but also reduce the number of false positives and avoid unnecessary treatment.

Check out a video of how the bra works here:
