With skin cancer awareness on the rise, the emergence of the 'SkinVision' app makes absolute sense. To document your moles on-the-go and have a record to keep for your dermatologist, it's a useful tool for those who have worrisome moles or skin areas.

The app does not replace the need for the doctor, but can assist you in tracking your moles from home and can assist your doctor when you go in for an appointment. The SkinVision app's specialized algorithm for detecting troublesome looking moles is pretty unique, as the database of the SkinVision app has over 100,000 documented moles.

From within the app, you can find out whether your mole is low, medium or high risk and whether you should be looking into more professional help.
