The DermoScreen App Helps Detect Cancerous Skin Cells

Cancer is definitely one of the most feared illnesses, but people can gain more control over it with the amazing technology infused into the DermoScreen App. The app can detect whether or not you have skin cancer in the early stages.

The medical app was created by George Zouridakis, a professor of engineering technology at the University of Houston. He created the app to have a dermoscope attachment that takes pictures of your skin. The software then analyzes the picture and tells you if there is a possibility of having skin cancer within seconds -- it's astonishingly accurate 85 percent of the time.

Many people unfortunately don't know they have cancer until it is too late, so the $500 price tag is nothing when compared to a lifespan.
