App/Website for Health Anxiety Sufferers

Stage: Clickable prototype

Type: Website

I've realised in the last year or so that there's a huge community of health anxiety sufferers, but it doesn't get a lot of attention and there doesn't seem. I've also noticed that a large majority of sufferers (including myself) get the most re-assurance from reading stats about the likelihood of certain diseases. For example, lately there's been a lot of worry about Brain Aneurysms, but a post on the sub-reddit highlighted that the chances of getting one ruptured is far less than that of getting struck by lightning in the US. My idea is to create an app that lets users input their information, and the illness they're worried about. The app will then show a number of extremely unlikely things to happen, that are more likely than the person having that illness.
