When Do You Need to Show a Growth to a Doctor

Episode #14 / May 29, 2009
Every day a patient calls Dr. Schultz to schedule an emergency appointment because she finds a growth that's appeared overnight. She assumes it must be dangerous - in her words, "perhaps even cancer." However it is important to remember that cancer and other dangerous conditions don't spring up overnight. So when should you make that appointment with your dermatologist to have your new growth checked out? Dr. Schultz will walk you through this intimidating but usually benign experience.
