Different options for breast cancer screening
October 1, 2020

During the COVID-19 pandemic, women have reportedly skipped or delayed their regular breast cancer screenings. This may lead to a surge in breast cancer diagnoses in the months ahead. That's according to a study in JAMA.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Dr. Katie Hunt, a Mayo Clinic radiologist, says it's the perfect time to make sure women are up to date on their breast cancer screenings. 

In this Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Hunt discusses a variety of recommendations for screening and encourages women not to miss the window of opportunity to catch breast cancer early.
