  • In the light of recent findings on COVID-19 risk among women with breast cancer, most of these changes should not be maintained as the risk of severe COVID-19 is related to comorbidities and age rather than breast cancer.
  • Only women with breast cancer aged over 65 or with comorbidities require adaptation of their cancer management, according to the Senologic International Society.
