Advances in patient self-monitoring of the skin


Patients at higher risk of skin cancer are routinely advised to look out for changes to their skin’s appearance. The more skin that can be routinely recorded with photography, the higher the likelihood of catching any future skin change at an early stage. Apps for patients’ skin self-examinations are being introduced as part of the solution. As well as providing reminders to perform regular skin self-exams, they can be a convenient cost-effective photographic aid for patients to record the appearance of their moles and overall skin between or after medical consultations. This advertorial from Miiskin describes the benefits of using their app that facilitates thorough skin self-examinations.
