Check Your Moles With an App
What to do if I notice changes?
If you notice changes in a mole or mark try to book a consultation with your doctor as soon as possible, explain what you have seen. If the waiting time to see a specialist is very long, try having a online dermatology consultation with your dermatologist for a pre-screening. After they review the photo they will refer you to a local dermatology clinic in your area and will help you skip the waiting time.
What to look for when using an app for checking moles?
If you have had any worrying moles checked and now want to be proactive about spotting early changes on your skin and moles, you can use Miiskin to check moles for changes with close-up photos and just as importantly your overall skin through full-body photos taken with Automatic Skin Imaging.
How do you check moles with the app?
Miiskin contains a handy side-by-side comparison tool directly in the app that you can use to compare your follow-up photos against your baseline photos to see if there has been any visual changes.
For your full-body photos it is beneficial to take advantage of Miiskin’s Web Compare tool. Web Compare allows you to view your full-body photos on a desktop computer or tablet, so you get the benefit of a larger screen size when you compare your full-body photos side-by-side to see if any lesions have changed or if any new lesions have appeared on your skin.
When should you get moles checked instead of using an app?
If you have a specific mole or lesion that you are concerned about today and you haven’t had it examined by a doctor, we do not recommend you to rely on any app to check this mole. Instead you should book an appointment with a doctor to get this mole or lesion checked.
You can then follow your doctor’s instructions and learn whether monitoring this mole or lesion for changes with Miiskin and if taking full-body photos for overall skin monitoring would be beneficial to you.
You can use Miiskin to holistically check your moles for changes by routinely taking photos of the same moles over time as well as take full-body photos for overall monitoring of as many moles as possible and to look out for new lesions. You can then later present photos to your doctor if you spot any changes.
Why is it important to check your moles for changes with an app?
It’s important to check your moles for changes, particularly if you have atypical moles or unusually appearing moles. A change in a mole could be a skin cancer sign. You can get to know the appearance of your moles and document their appearance with photos to check them for changes at home, but you should see a physician if you are concerned about one or more of your moles and want an examination if a mole on your skin might be of concern.
Is there an app to detect skin cancer?
Miiskin’s does not provide any AI assessments or diagnoses of any kind. It is important that you get any moles or lesions, you are explicitly concerned about, checked out by a doctor and to not rely on any apps to replace a doctor’s examination of your skin. Miiskin can be used to visually keep track of any changes on your skin and moles but it is the job of a doctor to examine moles and other lesions for any signs of cancer.
