New iPhone App Tracks Moles to Help Find Skin Cancer

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.
