May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. A new app provides users with a first line of advice about whether any of their moles, rashes or skin conditions are dangerous. It's always important to see a physician. But the app provides a board-certified dermatologist's advice about whether a visit is urgent.

Here & Now's Robin Young talks with Dr. Alexander Börve (@DrBorve), who developed the First Derm app.

This segment aired on May 6, 2019.
