App that can help diagnose skin cancer

The advancement in apps used in the smartphones are now been able to help diagnose diseases by just taking a slefie - and forewarn a person if he/she is in the danger zone.

SkinVision is one such app that uses photos to assess moles and freckles on a person's skin to diagnose skin cancer. The app automatically analyses the moles and provides a 'risk rating.'

The app's purpose is to assist in the early detection of skin cancer and it claims that its diagnosis is 83% correct. The app uses an algorithm to analysis the lesion based on fractal geometry.

It may be added that over 95 per cent of skin cancers in Australia alone are caused by sun exposure.
