SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - If you’re diagnosed with cancer during COVID, is it safe to get treatment?

Coming up next in today’s Medical Moment, the questions you need to ask.

Delivering care to cancer patients during the pandemic has proved to be a challenge.

Clinical trials have been postponed, cancer screenings have been missed, and the uncertainty of whether a treatment will increase their risk of severe COVID has left cancer patients in the dark.

Martie Salt has the questions you need to ask to get the best care.

Dr. Warner says some additional questions to consider is whether you would feel comfortable going to an intensive care unit or hospice care earlier than you might have thought.
