    WebMD Top Mobile Search Terms

    WebMD Feature

    You're on the go, and so is your need for health information. This year, the top search terms on WebMD's mobile site showed you had symptoms on your mind, and you wanted answers.

    Here are WebMD's top search terms from its mobile site in 2011:

    2011 Year in Health

    1. Ringworm: Maybe you saw that telltale ring on your skin and wondered if it was ringworm. What does it look like, and how do you get it? (Hint: It's not from a worm.)
    2. Hemorrhoids: Such a common problem, but not one most people want to talk about. So they look it up online. Blame it on that little mobile keyboard, but it was often searched for as "hemroids." No worries, we don't take points off for spelling.
    3. Turf toe: Ouch! This injury lit up search when it shut down athletes -- just ask Cleveland Browns running back Brandon Jackson or Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb about it.
    4. Strep Throat: You might have looked this one up at the doctor's office, or when you just couldn't shake that sore throat. Hope you're feeling better by now.
    5. Pregnancy Symptoms: "Am I pregnant?" is a surprisingly common question typed into WebMD's search box. We don't know what's going on in your love life. And you do need a pregnancy test to find out. But if you are pregnant, this article tells you what you might be noticing about your body.
