Sanjay Sreekumar, the Indian-origin student in Australia developed a smartphone application which helps in detecting the breast cancer early. Sanjay Sreekumar is the software engineering undergraduate from Australian National University.

The application was designed by him for the Young Adults Programme (YAP), the breast cancer awareness organisation. The application known as Yap app allows the individuals to monitor the early signs of breast cancer on their own. The application helps by facilitating monthly inputs of the breast irregularities. The application allows identifying if a person requires further medical screening.

Sanjay Sreekumar explained that the application has a huge potential because it provides proactive means for detecting illnesses. At present, Sanjay Sreekumar is working on the improvement of application by adding multiple languages as well as visual aids.

The primary aim of YAP is to provide additional information on breast cancer in order to save lives. The application can also be used for other illnesses.
