BLAZING A TRAIL AGAINST SKIN CANCER
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.
