An Infopark company Thinkpalm Technologies Pvt. Ltd, has devised an app to detect breast cancer. Cochin Cancer Society has contributed an awareness campaign by releasing a mobile application, which helps in detecting, defending and treating breast cancer.
“Save Your Mother 2015”, the app is already available in Android platform within a week, it can be accessed in IOS platform (Apple I Store). Contents of the app are separated as cancer defence, detection and treatment. The app explains how the disease can be detected through self-check-up. In a section of the app it also clears up the misconceptions and clarifies the realities on cancer. Treatment methods are vividly explained and it shows that breast cancer can be completely cured when it is identified at the preliminary stages. Cochin Cancer Society has come out with this app as breast cancer is getting rampant among women, says Society patron, Dr.V.P. Gangadharan. Awareness sections on other forms of cancer will also be included in the app shortly.
