THE COST OF DELAYING YOUR MAMMOGRAM.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a massive delay in patients getting their screening mammograms, among other early detection and preventative exams. The fear of going out to doctors appointments and screening exams has delayed care for patients at alarming rates. Sadly, cancer and other diseases have not stopped because COVID-19 is here.
Delayed mammograms have resulted in delayed diagnoses, which have resulted in delayed treatments, and ultimately resulting in an increase in later-staged and sometimes more aggressive cancers. Later staged cancers are harder and more expensive to treat. Additionally, patients have more treatment options when a cancer is found earlier, at a stage 0, 1 or 2.
