With over 16,000 new cases every year, Melanoma Skin Cancer is the 5th most common cancer in the UK and we know that early diagnosis saves lives.
That’s why we’ve developed our Remote Skin Assessment Service, for fast detection of skin cancer from the comfort of a customer’s own home, without the need for a GP referral.
This service is available nationwide and customers will get their results back within three working days, from the time they register.
That’s, on average, three times faster than seeing a dermatologist in person.
On average 1 in 5 people will develop skin cancer at some point in their lifetime, with UV exposure being the biggest cause of this type of cancer. Just one case of severe sunburn heavily increases your chances of getting skin cancer in the future.
Users will have access to an unlimited number of tests worth over £45 per year. The SkinVision app also allows users to store photos to keep track of changes over time, helping both them and their doctor to monitor changes in the long term.
SkinVision helps you assess skin spots and moles for the most common types of skin cancer.
- Take a photo of the skin spot or mole with your smartphone and receive a risk indication by our clinically validated technology within 30 seconds.
- SkinVision will provide recommendations on the next steps to take, including whether to visit a healthcare professional.
- Set reminders to track any changes to your skin spots
