Should you be getting routine cancer screenings during the COVID-19 pandemic? Up until recently, experts recommended delaying screenings whenever possible to conserve health care resources and limit risk of exposure to the virus. As restrictions begin lifting in certain areas, some offices will begin seeing patients again for routine screenings, while public officials continue to stress that you are “safer at home.”
There is no one-size-fits-all answer, and you should talk to your health care team to see if it makes sense for you to get routine screenings now or postpone.
