Your iPhone Now Screens For Skin Cancer

There’s a small black mole on my right cheek that’s been there ever since I learned how to look in the mirror. While I like to think it puts me in the same league as Cindy Crawford and Marilyn Monroe, there’s a fine line between a beauty mark and a potentially cancerous skin growth. I know I should go to my dermatologist to have him take a look, but who has the time?

Well, now I don’t have any excuse to let my mole go unchecked. According to Yahoo, there’s a new iPhone app called SpotCheck that screens for melanoma. It lets you take a picture of any mole with your phone and send it to dermatologist Dr. Bobby Buka, the developer behind the app. Within 24 hours, you’ll receive a text message stating whether or not he thinks you should have the mole evaluated. Preventing skin cancer has never been easier.

As always, make sure you wear SPF daily to protect yourself from the sun’s harmful rays.
