Early detection of skin cancer can save lives.
Skin cancer is a common disease. More than 2,000 people are diagnosed with it every year in Switzerland. Luckily, it is almost always curable. A simple check can save your life: 90% of skin cancers that are detected early can be cured.*
Thanks to the skin-checker campaign launched by our partner La Roche-Posay, you can now check moles and blemishes on yourself and your loved ones. Sign up now and become a skin-checker at www.skinchecker.ch.
In addition to the skin-checker launch, La Roche-Posay is once again running its Myskincheck campaign this year. Take a photo of your mole or blemish and upload it online, where it can be assessed by a doctor. Helsana recommends that you take advantage of the online skin check offered again this year free of charge. Almost 200 suspicious melanomas were identified in this way last year. The free offer is available for the whole month of May (www.myskincheck.ch).
