For Luciano Orsini, that meant postponing surgery at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia for about a month to avoid having it when virus cases were rising there. Orsini lost one kidney to cancer last year and was eager for this surgery to remove tumors on his sole remaining one. He was tested for the virus several times, including the night before his April 29 surgery.
“It was a little daunting” waiting, he said. “I was constantly watching the clock.”He’s now recovering at home in Sicklerville, New Jersey, and tested negative for the virus as recently as last week.“The pandemic is posing incredible demands on the cancer care system” and the new studies show good reason for concern, said Dr. Howard Burris. He is president of the cancer society and heads the Sarah Cannon Research Institute in Nashville, Tennessee.
“We’re trying to minimize trips to the clinic” and telling older cancer patients and those with lung problems “to be extra vigilant, extra isolated, to stay at home, be careful with family members,” Burris said.Nearly half of the patients in Warner's study were receiving cancer treatment when diagnosed with COVID-19. The others either completed treatment, had not started it, been under observation or had cancer in the past.

Chill out for a second. Every germ on the planet is dangerous to current cancer patients. Btw a riot is going on. Its dangerous for any underlying conditions.

No matter what our ailments are if your immune system is compromised you’re susceptible from any type of virus. And FYI masks create more bacteria zones. MaskOff Considering cancer patients have an already weakened immune system...this is nothing new. What's the percentage for cancer patients who get the flu. Just curious.
