What will it help you with?

Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer. It can either arise de novo or from one of your pre-existing atypical moles. It is important to learn about the warning signs and symptoms and perform regular skin checks. Take a look at our ABCDE criteria to learn more about how to spot melanoma.

It is important to get to know your skin and check your moles regularly for any changes that may occur over time. A thorough self-check of your skin, including your scalp, nail beds, and other hard-to-reach places should be performed monthly to ensure your skin is healthy. You can use a mirror to help you examine areas of your body not easily seen, like your back.

Who is it for?

According to Cancer Research UK The older you are, the more likely you are to develop non melanoma skin cancer. But skin cancers can develop in younger people too. Most skin cancers are caused by exposure to the sun. This may be long term exposure, or short periods of intense sun exposure and burning. The ultraviolet light in sunlight damages the DNA in the skin cells. This damage can happen years before a cancer develops.

People who have already had a skin cancer have a greater risk of getting another one compared to someone who hasn't had one. Researchers think this is most likely because of sun exposure. You should cover up in the sun and look out for any signs of another skin cancer.

Most non melanoma skin cancers don't run in families. But research has found some families seem to have a higher number than normal.

Of course, skin type runs in families. So people from fair skinned families will be more at risk. But there might also be some other inherited genes that slightly increase the risk of non melanoma skin cancer in some families.

What does it Do?

MoleScope™ is a smartphone attachment for dermoscopy that provides a high-resolution, detailed view of the skin through magnification and specialized lighting. The MoleScope™ app allows you to track your moles by giving each mole its own profile and allowing you to place them on an interactive 3D body map. The MoleScope™ app is designed to help you scan your moles for warning signs and to help your doctor make a more accurate diagnosis. The actual diagnosis is left up to your dermatologist.

Why should I use this?

All skin cancer screenings are initially based off of a visual examination; only suspicious moles will be removed or biopsied for further analysis. With MoleScope™, you are able to supply your doctor with high-quality images, with the same level of detail that they would be able to obtain in the clinic. By sending in your MoleScope™ image, you provide your doctor with the first step of the evaluation. Based on the image that you provide, your dermatologist may determine that your mole does not need any immediate attention or biopsy, and you can rest assured until your next regular checkup. For more suspicious moles, your doctor can ask to make an in-person appointment and perform a biopsy, if necessary. This way, the MoleScope™ system gives priority to people who need immediate attention, and gives peace of mind to those who do not. MoleScope™ provides high-quality images that are comparable to the images your doctor can take with a professional dermatoscope
