App aims to hasten skin cancer treatment
Throughout Europe today, it is Melanoma Monday. Sweden is at the top of the list in Europe when it comes to deadly skin cancer – about 500 people in this country died of it last year, and this is the day when people who have suspicious looking moles can go to the dermatologist without a referral from their general practitioner. Some general practitioners in the area of Västra Götaland have been testing a smartphone app to speed up the treatment of skin cancer.
Dr. John Paoli, who was a consultant for the development of the app, from Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg, joins Radio Sweden on the line to explain how it works.
