Breast Cancer Prioritization

Breast Cancer Prioritization, Treatment, and Triage Recommendations During COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically overwhelmed health care systems in San Diego and throughout the world.

It has also created uncertainty and increased risks for women and men seeking in-person medical care for their breast health.

To provide clarity during this challenging time, the American Society of Breast Surgeons released their recommendations for prioritization, treatment and triage for breast cancer patients during COVID-19.

The full list of recommendations can be found here.

Please do not change your treatment plan without first consulting with your doctor. These are recommendations, and should not supersede your doctor’s treatment plan for you.
