Every President since Franklin Roosevelt has declared April as National Cancer Control Month. In this year’s proclamation, President Biden stated, “we reaffirm our national commitment to preventing cancer, improving treatments and the delivery of care, and finding a cure. This includes efforts to improve cancer prevention, promote early detection, enhance treatment, and support the needs of cancer survivors and caregivers.” Early detection in breast, cervical, colon and lung cancer saves lives – but many patients have foregone regular testing due to the pandemic. This could have dire consequences for patient care and treatment outcomes, per the Avalere study of Medicare beneficiaries in the Nov. 2020 Journal of Clinical Oncology Clinical Cancer Informatics. All Americans should ensure that their cancer screenings are on track. For questions about the recommended tests, ask our physicians at OHLR.
