People with cancer may be concerned about receiving treatment during the 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, but care is essential to better outcomes. Hospitals have enhanced infection control to keep patients and staff safe. This is especially true at NYU Langone Health’s Perlmutter Cancer Center, where people with cancer continue to safely receive care at our locations in Manhattan, Long Island, Brooklyn, and Queens.
Eva Chalas, MD, physician director of Perlmutter Cancer Center at NYU Winthrop Hospital, discusses cancer care during the COVID-19 pandemic and what to do if you suspect you have cancer on 77WABC Radio’s Katz’s Corner.
“If you’re concerned, get it checked out,” says Dr. Chalas, who is also professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology NYU Long Island School of Medicine. “That’s the best way to be sure you get to the bottom of it.”
