Stories 1
"I think it probably saved my life"
Seonaid Sichel
United Kingdom
I had a lesion come up, small and pink, like a pimple. Didn’t think much of it but as it was new, I used SkinVision on it and got a red rating. This was enough to make me concerned, but I decided to see my doctor when an email from the SkinVision team urged me to do so.
Stories 2
"SkinVision gave me the confidence to go and ask the doctor"
William Webber
United Kingdom
I downloaded the app and it immediately came up with a high-risk result. After seeing a dermatologist and having the spot removed a few weeks later, the results revealed a Melanoma in situ, the earliest stage of cancer
Stories 3
"The melanoma could have been on my arm for years"
Andrew Bartlett
United Kingdom
I downloaded the app and followed the simple instructions. I immediately got a high-risk result and advice to see my GP urgently. This was exactly the kick I needed to stop procrastinating and take action.
Stories 4
"I’m now under strict watch"
Barry Joblin
New Zealand
I had a lesion come up, small and pink, like a pimple. Didn’t think much of it but as it was new, I used SkinVision on it and got a red rating. This was enough to make me concerned, but I decided to see my doctor when an email from SkinVision urged me to do so. The melanoma was removed along with my lymph nodes.
Stories 5
"SkinVision helped me make a habit out of checking my moles"
Sally H. (App Store Review)
United Kingdom
As a red head with lots of freckles and moles who loves to be in the sun, it is very important for me to keep an eye on them for changes. I’ve never been good at remembering to check them and always loose any photos I take. I love this app. I can store photos on a map of my body so I know which mole is where. The app will remind me every 3 months to check them again. It also checks my moles for me and has in fact referred me to consult my doctor about 1 mole and has given me a report to do so!
Stories 6
"It detected basal cell carcinomas that even my GP didn’t want to take seriously"
Chazza (App Store Review)
United Kingdom
Best app ever! This app has detected a number of basal cell carcinoma’s that even my GP didn’t want to take seriously. The report that it can produce is great to take to appointments and is also recognised by professionals. Being able to store the pictures of moles or lesions so that they can be rechecked is great for comparing. Couldn’t recommend this app highly enough, especially as a person with high risk skin
