What skin concerns should I ask my doctor about?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
Ask your doctor any questions you have about the health of your skin. If you have any symptoms, such as swelling, redness, itching, or burning, point them out. Ask your doctor to evaluate any suspicious growths or spots on your skin. For example, if you have a mole or other growth that has changed shape, is bleeding, or has altered in appearance in any way, show it to your doctor. Talk to your doctor, too, about your history of tanning and how it may affect your risk of skin cancer.
