It's a 'children's punch bag'.

And don't listen to Bluenose he doesn't speak English but a dialect known as 'stralian.

What do you call that inflatable toy which comes back after you punch it?

In the US, they're called bop bags. Much less inventive and evocative than the Brazilian name.  :)

I need help with wording. :)

Does 'patients with diagnoses bordering on malignancy' make sense? The idea is patients diagnosed with cancer stages which are advanced but which have not yet undergone metastases.

l think I'd word it "patients with malignant cancer that has not yet metastasised"
or "patients with non-metastastic malingnant cancer"
or indeed "patients with non-metastastic malingnancy"

I was thinking "pre-metastatic" but I looked at terminology and usage, and it appears that nonmetastatic, as suggested by Bluenose is the appropriate term.  :)
