Cancer Screening

“Cancer does not stop for COVID-19 and Neither should we”. 

Delay in cancer screening may result in missed early-stage cancer and more advanced stage cancer may not be curable and result in poorer outcome. It is of utmost importance that critical cancer screening resume in a safe manner during this pandemic.

American College of Surgeons in partnership with other leading cancer organizations endorses resumption of cancer screening and treatment during COVID-19 pandemic. With effective vaccines being available now this can be done safely.

We at MedStar Shah Associates are joining forces with American College of Surgeons- Commission on Cancer to get our community members to seek timely cancer screening in safe setting.

We urge you to discuss cancer screening with your health care provider who will direct you on the right path to living healthy life.
