Ask the Doctor: Checkups and screenings


(WTNH) — In this week’s Ask the Doctor segment, we are talking about springtime checkups.

For more insight, News 8’s Anne Craig spoke with Dr. Beth Collins. Collins is double board certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery.

For women, there are screenings we should be getting annually; one of those is a mammogram.

Some of the questions we asked:

– How often should breast cancer screenings be done?

– What about men for prostate cancer screenings?

– There are also tests that should be done annually; what are those?

Check out the video above for Dr. Beth’s answers, and catch News 8 at 5 p.m. every Wednesday for our “Ask the Doctor” segments.
