MelApp has been hit with a $17,963 fine for making false cancer claims via their app.
The app, which sold for $1.99, enabled users to snap a pic of suspect skin lesions, and then have a determination made as to whether the skin mark was cancerous.
Mole Detective, a similar type of app, also came under the scrutiny of the FTC a few months back.
