About this app

The incidence of skin cancer has increased steadily worldwide in recent years. Statistically, the probability of developing skin cancer once in a lifetime is about 20%. Early detection is of extreme importance. The earlier skin cancer can be detected, the better the chances of recovery. This is why our group of dermatologists and biomedical engineers have developed SkinScreener, a smart way to determine the personal risk of altered skin areas with an app, in addition to regular dermatological examinations.

A clinical study at the Medical University of Graz (using more than 1500 images of real patients) has proven that SkinScreener has an impressive 95% accuracy rate in the detection of skin cancer.

SkinScreener is a user-friendly app, developed and clinically proven by a team of dermatologists, physicians, and biomedical engineers. SkinScreener enables a quick assessment of the risk of skin cancer in the case of skin lesions (moles, skin spots, birthmarks).

For this purpose, a photo of the designated skin area is taken with the camera of the smartphone. The image is then run through our clinically proven neural network. The risk status for skin cancer is indicated by an easy to understand 3 color code (low, medium, high risk).

SkinScreener is available as a free download, and users will receive a limited number of free scans after registration. Additional scans are offered as a paid subscription for a period of 3 or 12 months, or as a paid number of scans.

Before the scan, users must perform a camera test to ensure a working camera and good photo quality. The scan is performed according to the instructions for use. The algorithm calculates the risk assessment for skin cancer at the designated skin area:
Yellow: MEDIUM RISK or

Based on the risk assessment, users are advised to consult a dermatologist for further examination to obtain an accurate medical diagnosis. Users with a "MEDIUM RISK" or "HIGH RISK" rating should see the dermatologist earlier than the recommended preventive dermatological examinations. The specialist will then verify the results by further specialist examinations.

In the LOW RISK assessment, the skin lesion should be monitored regularly and rescanned at least once a month.

Nevertheless, SkinScreener users should visit their dermatologist for a regular annual dermatological examination.

SkinScreener is registered as a Class I medical device (European Directive 93/42/EEC) and clinically validated by a study at the Medical University of Graz.

SkinScreener is intended for adult users with Fitzpatrick skin type I (ivory) to IV (light brown). SkinScreener must not be used on children.

Indication: To evaluate a lesion on human skin for possible visual signs of skin cancer using a three-level classification (LOW RISK, MEDIUM RISK, or HIGH RISK).

The circle will not "close" when I tap on the screen, so it will not take a photo. Yes, I have tried restarting my phone etc. I'm also extremely concerned about the reviews that state that this app seeks all sorts of permissions surreptitiously - deleting this app immediately.

Downloaded the app to check a mole. I didn't want a subscription as they're expensive. So decided to do the £6.99 one single review option. Took a picture, and the AI picked up an area of skin that wasn't even the mole, it charged me to tell me this area of skin was low risk. It doesn't give you the option to change the area to be reviewed. It was a waste of money, and I should have just gone to my GP for a free review.

Dear Kazzy, so sorry for your bad experience. We believe you might have confused our app with another provider as we do not offer a single review option. When taking a scan in the SkinScreener app, you have the possibility to review the scan image before proceeding and getting a risk assessment. 📸 Kind regards, Support Team

App tries to connect to Facebook and Adjust advertising network without asking. It does not work if you block this traffic. It even tries to connect to Google Firebase though the switch in the privacy settings is OFF. I guess this is against DSGVO.
