MAYO CLINIC RADIO

Have you ever used the Internet to research a medical symptom you might be experiencing? On Saturday, April 26, at 9 a.m. CT, we'll discuss a condition called cyberchondria. Richard Seime, Ph.D., will be on the program 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, with 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? Join us!

Myth or Matter of Fact:  Cyberchondria is another name for hypochondria.
