A new study suggests that training a partner to spot potential skin cancers can be a life-saver for melanoma survivors, according to The Montana Standard.

“‘Skin check partners’ help melanoma patients to see areas they cannot easily see by themselves, and assist in making a decision about whether the mole changed and they need to see the doctor,” explained lead researcher Dr. June Robinson.

Together, “the trained pair works together successfully to find early melanoma,” explained Robinson, who’s a professor of dermatology at Northwestern University in Chicago.
