Prevention, Education and Early Detection
The Canadian Skin Cancer Foundation and Miiskin, the leading skin checking app, are joining forces in the fight against skin cancer. Miiskin is proud to support the work of the Canadian Skin Cancer Foundation by fundraising for the charity and helping to raise awareness of the importance of keeping an eye on your skin to spot any changes. Detecting changes to your skin and moles can be crucial in catching skin cancer early and photos are a good way to identify changes. The Miiskin app helps you to track your skin and moles for changes by using photos to create a snapshot of your skin’s appearance. Miiskin will help you routinely check your skin for changes with convenient reminders.
Miiskin does not try to diagnose skin cancer or tell you that you are at risk or not. The detection of skin cancer is far from simple and should only be undertaken by qualified doctors – not apps. Miiskin simply helps you to keep a regular eye on your skin, so that you can seek medical help if you spot concerning changes.
