Every May, our goal is to get people on their own ‘mole hunt’, encouraging them to check their skin and look out for any changes to markings on their body.

Melanoma is one of the few cancers we can see for ourselves.  That means it’s in our power to catch it early – and if we do that, we stand a better chance of dealing with it. The past couple of years have had a major impact on our health, not just from Covid itself but from the knock-on effect it has had. National lockdowns and pressure on healthcare systems means that melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, has gone undetected and untreated.

With the dramatic shortage of skin cancer specialists in the UK we need to empower the public to get involved and help us fight back. The chances of beating melanoma are hugely increased when it’s detected early and using an app like SkinVision helps us to have access to skin experts who can identify when a mole is likely to be high risk.
