Abstract

Perioperative Concerns of Breast Cancer Surgery during COVID-19 Pandemic

Uma Hariharan

Statement of the Problem: Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women all over the world, with increasing incidences due to various reasons. These include greater awareness about the occurrence of breast cancer, early detection, increase in life-style and stress-related diseases, hormonal imbalances and diet. Operative treatment forms the mainstay of management along with chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The current COVID-19 pandemic is an eye opener for all the stake-holders in health-care sector. The inadequate health systems are currently overwhelmed by COVID-19, that other diseases like cancer have taken a back seat in most institutions. Breast cancer can spread further if surgical treatment is delayed in resectable tumors, resulting in increased morbidity and mortality.
