Miiskin Smartphone App to Benefit CANSA

Miiskin and CANSA are working together to create awareness in the South African population about checking your skin and moles for changes.

The Miiskin smartphone app is the best free self awareness tool for checking your skin & moles for signs of skin cancer.

The app contains paid premium features of which CANSA will receive 15%.

Available on the App Store and Google Play.

For more information regarding Miiskin visit or follow Miiskin on Facebook or Twitter.

Lorraine Govender, CANSA National Manager Health Promotion says, “It’s also important to be aware of changes to the skin in order to detect skin cancer early. With this in mind, we partnered with Miiskin, a free user-friendly app for monitoring changes on your skin, although it doesn’t replace a doctor’s visit and isn’t a diagnostic tool. Any suspicious moles or abnormalities should be checked out by a dermatologist or medical professional. It’s another way to encourage people to be aware of skin changes and to monitor them. Extra functionalities can be accessed through a subscription that comes with a 30-day free trial and if consumers take this up, Miiskin donates 15% of subscriptions to CANSA to assist in implementing our risk reduction and support work.”
