59 Cancer Research Developments

From Cancer-Scanning Apps to Self-Diagnosing Stickers

— July 29, 2013 — Tech
Every day there are new cancer research developments to help prevent, detect and monitor the spread of cancer. Technological advancements and the immense capability of smartphones have enabled people to take their personal health into their own hands. Early cancer detection is key and at-home handheld devices, kits and apps that are always at the ready make it easier than ever to perform routine check-ups at your own convenience.

Another plus is that cancer-detection devices are becoming less invasive and smarter than ever, like technologies that can identify cancer purely based on smell. To combat this disease, technology is being borrowed from other fields, like star-mapping technology that monitors moles and potentially malignant growths the same way constellations are tracked in the sky.
