Technology takes on breast cancer

Wednesday 17 July 2013

Software Engineering undergraduate, Sanjay Sreekumar has developed a smart phone app for the early detection of breast cancer.

Sanjay designed the app for breast cancer awareness organisation The Young Adults Program.

“There’s a big potential for apps to provide a proactive means of detecting illnesses,” Mr Sreekumar said.

“This is not something that just targets specific people. It can affect everyone regardless of age and gender.”

“I always feel sympathetic when I hear stories about people suffering from cancer. This is something I can do.”

The YAP app is designed to allow individuals to self-monitor for early signs of breast cancer. By providing monthly inputs of breast irregularities, the application can help identify if further medical screening is required.
