Doctors worry the coronavirus pandemic could lead to worse cancer outcomes

KYW In Depth: Coronavirus
Friday, July 31st
People have spent a lot more time at home during the coronavirus pandemic. That's a good thing when we're talking about controlling the spread of the virus -- but we didn't just stop going to the gym, or going out to dinner. A lot of people were too nervous to go to the doctor's office as well. Studies are showing that the number of screenings for cervical, colon and breast cancers in the first few months of 2020 are a lot lower than they have been in previous years. So what could that end up meaning for our health, and for the cancer rate in the country? Dr. Angela Nicholas, Chief Medical Officer at Einstein Medical Center in Montgomery County joins KYW In Depth to talk about at home cancer screenings and who should make it a priority to drop what they're doing and get screened, pandemic or no pandemic.
