Abstract

Melanoma is the type of fast evolving lesion with an increasing incidence. In 2012, more than 230,000 new cases of melanoma were recorded and it caused more than 55,000 deaths [1]. In Peru, the number of people with this disease is increasing, due to the lack of culture in the protection of UV radiation, and the extreme levels to which we are exposed. Peru is the country with the highest UV radiation in the world. This study explores a new way of melanoma prevention and detection through the use of the technology, an application of the web system will be used. Which will provide us with descriptive, quantifiable data.A screaming was performed through the use of ICT, to facilitate the diagnostic support of suspicious lesions of melanoma in the population of the CALLAO Region.There have been previous experiences, but in our case, this research is focused on the use of technology for use of health centers as a support tool for the early diagnosis of melanoma. This is a descriptive study, we used the snowball sampling technique for found a suspect, 128 lesions of participants older than 18 years old were registered.We found 18 lesions suspected of melanoma identified by Dr. Cesar Ramos, a dermatologist at Hospital Cayetano Heredia.We communicate with each participant, indicating if they needed to perform a medical consultation relevant to the physical evaluation of the injury.We hope that this research project can contribute to a better perspective of the research in the field of nursing professionals, interested in a new era of a nurse concerned about population health using technological changes for the society.
