COVID-19 and breast cancer
“We want to reassure you, it’s OK to see your doctor, even during the continued COVID-19 crisis,” said Komen’s Chief Scientific Advisor Dr. George Sledge, Jr., who is a medical oncologist and Professor of Medicine and Chief of the Division of Oncology in the Department of Medicine at Stanford University. “We don’t want women to stop getting mammograms and there is no reason to further delay. Hospitals and cancer centers know how to appropriately mitigate the risk of infection and are among the safest places to go in society in that regard.”
