Up next on Access Health: Early detection of Lyme disease, genetic testing for Lynch syndrome, and how chronic heartburn could be increasing your risk of esophageal cancer.

Each year, some 300,000 people in the United States contract Lyme disease. Early detection and treatment are key. Now there’s a new rapid test that can change the game.

Lynch syndrome is an inherited, genetic mutation that is associated with an increased risk of endometrial, gastric, and ovarian cancers. It is also the number one cause of inherited colorectal cancer.
