The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that the number of people age 65 and older will almost double over the next 35 years. That increase is expected to be accompanied by a rise in cases of dementia. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio, geriatrician Dr. Ericka Tung explains what causes dementia and how it's treated. Also on the program, adults aren't the only ones who get kidney cancer; children can get it, too. Pediatric urologist Dr. Candace Granberg discusses kidney cancer in children. And, clinical psychologist and certified sex therapist Dr. Jordan Rullo reviews a new study about flibanserin (ADDYI), a drug used to treat low sex drive in women.

Myth or Matter-of-Fact: Dementia isn't a specific disease. Rather, it describes a group of symptoms affecting memory, thinking and social abilities.

Listen to the program on Saturday, April 2, at 9:05 a.m. CDT, and follow #MayoClinicRadio.
