The app uses push notifications to encourage users to check their skin in the places cancer is most common for their skin tone - places mainstream cancer advice forgets.
Users can upload images of moles, pigments, and patches to track texture, shape, and size. “Questions around ‘has that changed shape?’, and ‘does this look different?’ are banished. You can finally know for sure.
The app will transform this data into video timelapses so you can show your doctor 3 months of a mole in under a minute.
