Cyberchondria: Mayo Clinic Radio

April 29, 2014

Have you ever used the Internet to research a medical symptom you might be experiencing?  On Saturday, April 26, we discussed a condition called cyberchondria. Richard Seime, Ph.D., joined us to talk about the use of the internet for medical information. Of course we know the best internet site for accurate medical information is our own MayoClinic.org ... but there is so much information in cyberspace, when does it become a problem?  How many people are using the internet to self-diagnose or self-treat?  When is the Internet helpful and when is it unhealthy?
