Reviews

Reviewer: Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF), USA
Review: “Regular skin checks can assist in detecting melanoma in its earliest stages. Cancer screening has just gone mobile with a new free app called ‘UMSkinCheck’. The app is a collaboration of Michigan University’s technology and clinical expertise.”
