“They were amazed that you could get so much information from a photograph”

Theresa from Queensland, Australia wrote to us with a heartwarming tale of her experience with Skinvision. Thank you for sharing your story with us:

Hello,

I had a mole removed last week and got the results today. It was a melanoma and some skin was removed so no further action required.

Had several doctors over the last 5 years or so to examine the mole. Was always told it’s not raised so nothing to worry about.

Thank you for making available this amazingly accurate app to the general public.

My doctor and nurse had a look at the app and will tell other people about it. They were amazed that you could get so much information from a photograph.

Once again thank you 🙂

Mother of two beautiful girls in their twenties, grandmother of five gorgeous children. And mother of a precious twenty-one month old little boy.

Kindest regards and blessings to you all involved.

Melanoma: The current situation in New Zealand

New Zealand has, together with Australia, the highest melanoma incidence in the world. The combination of skin type and UV impact from the sun put the inhibitors of New Zealand at high risk. So let’s take a closer look at the current melanoma situation in NZ.

Why is skin cancer so common in Australia?

Australia has a confluence of factors that put the population at risk of skin cancer. According to Cancer Council Australia, there are more than 750,000 people treated for one or more non-melanomas in Australia each year. Currently, two in three Australians will be diagnosed with some form of skin cancer before the age of 70. In fact, it was estimated that 15,229 new cases of melanoma alone would be diagnosed in 2019 (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare).
