Use your smartphone to boost your wellbeing on the go with these best health-tracking apps
Skin cancer rates for women in their 30s have soared by more than 50% since 2006. ‘Melanoma can develop and spread quickly, so being aware of your moles is important,’ says Dr Catherine Hood, women’s health specialist at Simplyhealth Advisory Research. ‘Taking photographs on an app helps you spot changes, which maximises the odds of early diagnosis.’
The app: Doctor Mole
After analysing photos of your moles, this app assigns a risk level to each so you can stop asking everyone from your mum to the postman if something does, in fact, look suspicious. It also saves your images so you can go back and check for changes over time – which experts agree is the key to spotting danger signs.
Free on android, £2.49 on iPhone and available on Windows Phone.
