The Pandemic’s Lasting Impact

“There were several months where all elective procedures were canceled. All the screening tests, the colonoscopies, the mammography, things like that. They were not happening. And there’s a lot of concern that cancer incidence is going to go up in the next couple of years because of that delay. The other part is people who were already diagnosed – maybe it wasn’t an emergency surgery, but they had to wait. So now you’ve got cancer cases at a higher stage than you would have had, worse prognoses, things like that. Not a lot of data just yet, but it is a concern among the pathology community.”
