Good news — cancer deaths are down 33%, according to the American Cancer Society.

The bad news is more people are being diagnoses with cancer than ever before, and at an earlier age.

UW Health's Dr. Jeff Pothoff talks about that trend and what people can do to keep themselves safe. He also discussed blood lead tests and the ongoing cold and flu season.
