Understandably, COVID-19 is causing a lot of concern for people with cancer. If you’re currently undergoing, or about to start breast cancer treatment, you may be feeling anxious or worried about being potentially exposed to the virus, accessing the treatment/s you need (e.g. chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery, immune-based therapy) or the effects of these treatments on your immunity.
At GenesisCare, you will always see the same experienced, dedicated radiation oncologist. Ensure you follow their advice and reach out to them if you have any concerns about your breast cancer treatment or risk of COVID-19 infection.
It’s important that people who need treatment for breast cancer don’t delay. Early diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer can greatly improve outcomes and survivorship.
Your safety and continued access to high-quality care are the top priorities for everyone at GenesisCare. The teams have taken every precaution to ensure patients seeking treatment and staff are safe, including increased frequency of cleaning rounds, strict hygiene protocols, limiting visitor numbers, screening of patients, staff and visitors on arrival, appropriate use of personal protective equipment and telehealth where appropriate.
