Summary

Skin-cancer prevention tool that provides an on-the-spot risk assessment. A user photographs the potential mole with the phone’s camera. The app (which previously was called Skin Scan) then relies on an algorithm to calculate the dimension of the mole and surrounding skin, and builds a structural map of the growth patterns of the different tissues involved. By processing the map, the app is able to assess whether the mole shows abnormal development. If so, it alerts the user to book a medical appointment. Moles are classified ‘high risk’, ‘medium risk’, or ‘low risk’. Results can be archived to track development.

Reviews

Reviewer: Blogger on Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF) forum, USA
Review: “Not sure how much I like this or not, as I doubt whether two of my melanomas would have been of concern. But it is a conversation piece, at least. And if it makes even one person more aware, and sends them to a dermatologist, it’s probably worth it.”
