An Indian-origin student inAustralia has developed a smartphone app for early detection of breast cancer.

Sanjay Sreekumar, software engineering undergraduate from Australian National University, designed the app for breast cancer awareness organisation The Young Adults Programme (YAP).

The 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.
