New iPhone App Tracks Moles to Help Find Skin Cancer

Posted on October 27th, 2015 by msequeira

Marianne Berwick, PhD, was part of the scientific team that worked with Apple to develop a new iPhone app that helps keep track of your moles. Moles that change -- either slowly or rapidly -- can be a sign of melanoma, a deadly skin cancer.  The app helps users catalog and track moles over their entire body. Users may also choose to participate in melanoma research by sharing their [deidentified] photos.
