An elderly woman is using a prevention app on her smartphone.
Health and prevention


The DearMamma app shows you how to perform a breast self-examination. As a result, breast cancer can be detected early and the chances of recovery are high.

Five white hands form a star on a pink background. The DearMamma app allows all women to easily learn this important prevention measure for the early detection of possible breast cancer. It uses pictures, films and spoken texts to explain what breast cancer is and how the self-examination of the breast is performed. A reminder function can be set up in the app to perform the self-examination again after a certain period of time.
