According to FirstPost, smartphones have the ability to become microscopes that can possibly detect certain types of skin cancer. Although normal telescopes are preferred, a smartphone microscope has been found to be fairly accurate in detecting cancer, especially in developing countries. In remote areas where no telescopes are available, smartphone microscopes could photograph the growths, then forward them on for more extensive examination.

When a traditional light microscope was compared to a smartphone microscope, the smartphone microscope was able to detect 90% of the non-melanoma skin cancers. This number, although not 100%, is quite impressive. The smartphone microscope was also able to detect 60% of the melanomas. These figures give hope for better diagnosis and treatment for cancer all around the world.
