Technologies like artificial intelligence alleviate health anxiety as they enable features like mole mapping in apps. Miiskin is a great example of this. It is a skin health app that can, with the help of AI, detect early signs of melanoma in users.
The mole mapping technology software is not new, however, the fact that it is integrated for personal use on a mobile device is quite cutting-edge. This move allows users to check the condition of their skin at any moment, alleviating stress from the unknown and the wait for getting checked with a clinician.
The Miiskin app can digitally detect new moles, freckles and other marks, monitoring the state of the skin, as well as "helping doctors [...] spot abnormalities."
