San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 13, 2008
This Skin Cancer Awareness Month provides a number of stark realities urging us to monitor and take better care of the skin we're in. Starting today, itsmylife Labs is offering http://www.logdit.com, a free service for creating permanent, online logs. With logdit, anyone using a mobile phone or computer can easily upload or email photos of their moles to a private record. If a mole appears to change, the log provides a useful benchmark that fills vital information gaps when meeting with your healthcare provider.
"For the insured and uninsured of all ages, benchmarking moles today makes sense," said Liz Sayers, CEO of itsmylife Labs and logdit. "It's free, it takes only five minutes, and one day one of these photos could save your life. The little mole that just appeared on your thigh could be a killer."
The American Academy of Dermatology estimates one million new cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed this year. Melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer, represents more than 75 percent of all skin cancer deaths, and its numbers are on the rise among young adults.
The first sign of melanoma is often a change in the size, shape, or color of a mole. Most adults have between 10 and 40 moles. Maintaining a visual benchmark is key to early detection and prevention.
