A Malayali student develops a free smart phone app that can detect cancer
Forget about the painstakingly slow and expensive cancer detection techniques like biopsy and scan. All you need to do is to turn on this smart phone app that can tell you whether you are at risk or not! It could indeed be too good to be true for anyone who might have gone through the cumbersome cancer detection procedures.
Sanjay Sreekumar, aged just 19, from Kochi, Kerala has designed a smart phone App to detect breast cancer. A software student in Australia, he has named it YapApp. The YapApp explains in English the step by step procedure for self-detection of breast cancer. There are two versions of this app for male and females respectively as breast cancer is found in men also.It can be down loaded for free on Android and iPhone devices and will be made available on BlackbBerry phones soon.
If you suspect a growth or patch, all you need to do is to press a panic button, which will show a list of nearby hospitals in your town. In addition, the app will give monthly reminders for self-examination. It is indeed a matter of great pride for every Malayalee that this futuristic App was launched at a prestigious function attended by ambassadors of 14 countries and many other distinguished figures in the Australian Parliament House recently.
