90 percent of melanomas--the most serious kind of skin cancer--are visible to the naked eye, no MRI, CT scan, or other kind of sophisticated scanning or imaging necessary. So why bother getting screened at a clinic? The University of Michigan has created an iPhone app that allows you to inspect yourself for skin cancer. All you have to do is take 23 nude pictures of yourself with your smartphone. Don`t worry, you don`t actually send these pictures in to the University, they are just to document your skin and the app will periodically remind you to compare your photos with your current skin and check for any deviations. I think this is a great app to have a record of your body`s moles and freckles, especially if you are prone to skin cancer with your skin type or within your family.
