Cathyhand I have worried about this too. My cancer center is nationally recognized so I trust them to a point. I was told no tests or scans without specific symptoms. I asked my PC doctor this question; how do they know if something is not right if they don’t check for it. I’m specifically concerned about possible lung or heart damage from left breast radiation. She did an EKG and a chest X-ray.
Results show that I have a small amount of fluid in my left lung and a small “blip” on the EKG. My insurance denied a chest ct that the PC ordered. I cancelled the cardiologist appointment over the covivid-19 concerns. At this point I’m not sure if I will be able to make my next oncologist appointment in late May.
