According to Prevent Cancer Foundation, one-third of Americans missed their routine cancer screenings due to the pandemic.

Our experts say now is the time to get back in to see your doctor for your mammogram. Survival is possible if caught early. We discussed what you need to know about breast cancer, from the different types, advancement in screening, and treatment options. Plus, a breast cancer survivor shares her story in hopes of helping others.

Additionally, we have an expert to analyze last week's debate for the Texas Governor's race.
