BLAZ­ING A TRAIL AGAINST SKIN CAN­CER

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - FILTER -

Jan­uary is skin can­cer aware­ness month – and with the risk of skin can­cer high on our tip of the con­ti­nent, it’s im­por­tant to pay at­ten­tion to any changes in your skin. Luck­ily, there’s an app for that. With Mole Map­per (R28, iOS), you can mon­i­tor your mole zones over time and com­pile records for your der­ma­tol­o­gist. The app was de­vel­oped by a can­cer bi­ol­o­gist in the US and by us­ing share­able user-gen­er­ated im­ages and data, it can alert you of pos­si­ble ma­lig­nant melanomas.
