DermTech is committing $1 Million* to end melanoma deaths

Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer but it’s 99%1 curable when caught early. Take the Skin Exam Pledge & help us save lives.

I pledge to schedule a skin exam with a doctor in the next 30 days.

We Can Stop Melanoma

At DermTech, we believe we can help end deaths from melanoma. We are working with patients, doctors, and other healthcare professionals to bring our commitment to life. We believe this because we now have the tools to make it happen. In the past, your doctor had to perform a biopsy to examine suspicious moles. Now your doctor can use the non-invasive DermTech Smart StickerTM to examine a mole painlessly and with less than 1%2 chance of missing melanoma — increasing the likelihood of diagnosing melanoma earlier.

How It Works

DermTech is committing $1 Million* to help raise awareness about the importance of skin exams and make them more accessible to everyone. Let’s unite together to end melanoma deaths.

DermTech Can Help Stop Melanoma

Accurate testing

The most effective way to eliminate melanoma deaths is to diagnose the disease early. The DermTech Melanoma Test rules out melanoma correctly over 99%2 of the time.

Revolutionary technology

The DermTech Smart Sticker™ allows a doctor to painlessly lift skin cells from the surface of a suspicious mole, without cutting. This approach makes testing easy and quick, and provides a non-invasive tool for skin cancer detection.

Breakthrough science

By collecting genomic material with the Smart Sticker and harnessing the power of precision genomics, we have the ability to detect the presence of genes linked to melanoma.

But your role in the fight against melanoma is crucial.

Skin exams are essential to creating a future without melanoma deaths — and you have the ability to make a powerful promise to your skin. Take the Pledge today and let’s outsmart skin cancer together.
