New Colorectal Cancer Guidelines & a Roadblock in the War Against Opioid Addiction
An alarming rise in colorectal cancer cases among young people has led the US Preventive Services Task Force to establish new guidelines. We'll talk with Dr. Michael Barry, a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and vice chair of the Task Force, to learn why 45 is the new 50 for colon cancer screening.

Then, it's not the most common cancer, but esophageal cancer is one of the deadliest forms of the disease. On this week's Mayo Q&A segment, we'll learn from Dr. Shanda Blackmon, a Mayo Clinic general thoracic surgeon, why many people don't realize they have esophageal cancer until it's in the advanced stages.

And, one in five US pharmacies blocks access to a key opioid addiction treatment. We'll learn why from Daniel Hartung, Pharm.D., M.P.H., Professor in the Oregon State University College of Pharmacy.
