Skin cancer kills far too many people each and every year, but there are signs that you can watch out for that could provide that all-important early diagnosis. Doctors also look out for the same signs, and now some apps can do it, too.
Symptoms of the various types of skin cancer include a new growth, changes in the size or color of existing spots on the skin, and strange sensations on the skin that don’t go away. They can be tenderness or itchiness, for example.
Some iPhone and Android apps can help to keep tabs on some of those symptoms by either analyzing images of your skin themselves or sending them off to a doctor for them to check.
A comprehensive report at CNET lists four different apps that can be used to keep tabs on your skin and help potentially catch skin cancer as soon as possible.
You can read more about the individual apps over at CNET, but the list includes:
- Miiskin (iOS / Android)
- UMSkinCheck (iOS / Android)
- SkinVision (iOS / Android)
- MoleScope (iOS / Android) – This particular app is accompanied by a clip-on lens.

All four apps are available for both Android and iPhone and all have the potential to catch the telltale signs of skin cancer. But it’s important to remember that they are no replacement for visiting an actual physical doctor if you’re concerned.
And that’s something worth remembering for all manner of health issues, too. Doctors go through years of training and while apps can be great, there’s no replacement for the real thing. If you’re at all concerned visit your own doctor to get things checked out.
