Cancer treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic
May 4, 2020
Because cancer treatments can weaken the immune system, cancer patients are at increased risk of complications from COVID-19. Despite these concerns, cancer patients often still need treatment, including going to the clinic or to the hospital, and many have questions about whether cancer should be treated differently during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Tanios Bekaii-Saab, a Mayo Clinic oncologist, explains how cancer patients can safely continue their cancer treatment during the pandemic.
