COVID-19 and breast cancer
Susan G. Komen suggests healthy women of average risk delay routine breast cancer screening until later this year. However, it’s important that people who are displaying warning signs for breast cancer contact their health provider to determine their need for diagnostic imaging. These recommendations are made in order to minimize exposure to and potential spreading of COVID-19 and to help support the health care system’s need to focus scarce health care capacity and resources on managing the pandemic and those most in need of support.
Komen South Carolina has invested more than $11 million in screening, diagnosis, treatment and survivor support programs serving the uninsured and under-insured in our 45 county service area. More than 1.2 million SC residents have received breast health education through our programs.
