Cancer deaths are expected to spike due to COVID-19.

Randall A. Oyer, MD, president of the Association of Community Cancer Centers, and medical director at Penn Medicine’s Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute in Lancaster, Pennsylvania talks to Contemporary Clinic® on the necessity of cancer screenings in the effort to reduce cancer mortality. The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is projected to cause a spike in cancer deaths, which, according to Oyer, is due to the decline in screening since the pandemic began.
