The warning mole takes action

Dear Sir or Madam,

Are you one of those people who would rather do their taxes or paint the kitchen than visit cancer check-up? If so, you are in good company, because many people are afraid of a positive result or the examination itself. Researchers at the ETH Zurich have now developed an implant that can warn its wearer of the four most common cancers and decrease the inhibition to get checked-up.

Have a nice week,

Timo Roth

The increased usage of telemedicine plays a big part in this development.

People who are not ill and do not show any symptoms typically do not visit the doctor. And while most people know that preventive medical checkups for cancer, for example, are important, they still avoid them. They tend to be very hesitant because the doctor might detect a serious illness. In the future, a new type of implant could make it easier to go to a screening test or even eliminate the need for it entirely.
