Melanoma UK and health technology company SkinVision has joined forces to provide a service that helps people to perform regular skin checks and flags up potential cancers to the attention of healthcare professionals.

PERFORM A SELF CHECK ON YOUR SMARTPHONE

Perform regular self-checks for skin cancer with your phone using the SkinVision app.

SkinVision is a premium, paid for medical service that helps you assess skin spots and moles for the most common types of skin cancer.

Take a photo of the skin spot with your smartphone and you receive a risk indication by SkinVisions clinically validated technology within 30 seconds. SkinVision will provide recommendations on the next steps to take, including whether to visit a healthcare professional.

It is the aim of SkinVision to raise awareness of skin cancer and provide a regulated medical device to help individuals assess their risk and get to the doctor in time. SkinVision is certified by BSI.

Why use SkinVision?

SkinVision wants to empower you to check your skin spots for signs of skin cancer. Their technology analyzes your photo and gives you an instant risk assessment and advice on what you should do next, so that you can see a doctor in time, if needed.

SkinVision helps to detect skin cancer at an early stage when it’s most treatable.

SkinVision’s UK Director, Gavin Matthews said, “The drop in skin cancer diagnoses during the pandemic is a huge concern, and we haven’t even felt the impact yet. Alongside our work with the NHS to help them recover, this partnership is really exciting because it goes right to the root of the problem. The biggest challenge is still that people don’t have the awareness to check their skin often enough and don’t have the skills to check accurately when they do. Melanoma UK’s mission is something we’re proud to be part of, not just by helping early detection with our service now, but also through the other great work that our ongoing donations will support.”


Melanoma UK’s Corporate Partnership Director Diane Cannon said, “The lockdowns that have been necessary during the Covid crisis, coupled with the additional strain on healthcare systems, have led to a worrying proportion of professional skin checks being missed. With this trend set to continue until we all emerge from the pandemic, it has never been more important for people to check their own skin for melanoma. In our fight against skin cancer, early detection is critical. Embracing the use of technology through our partnership with SkinVision, we can encourage everybody to find just 10 minutes a month and make a skin self-examination part of their regular routine. Everyone needs this app – it could save your life.”
