NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — In this week’s Ask the Doctor segment, we’re talking about cancer screenings.
Double board certified in reconstructive and plastic surgery, Dr. Beth Collins, joined News 8 to talk about the subject.
Some of the questions we asked:
– A big story this week: Actor Ben Stiller announced he was diagnosed with prostate cancer and his doctor caught it through a specific test?

– Some people are genetically predispositioned. There’s a gene called the “BRCA” gene?
