Madrid, September 13, 2021- "the survival rate in lung cancer in Spain may have fallen by 2% since the beginning of the pandemic as a result of delays in diagnosing patients”, as stated by Dr. Allan Sam, head of the Pulmonology Service at MD Anderson Cancer Center Madrid, on the occasion of European Lung Cancer Week, which takes place these days, who also adds that the real figure will not be known until after a year or two.

MD Anderson Cancer Center Madrid and Cigna Spain have prepared a document with practical advice on supporting employees who live with cancer during the process of adaptation to the current work, social and health scenario.

Workers with cancer, or those who live with cancer patients, now face a number of challenges affecting their emotional well-being: the disease itself, the fear of contagion by COVID-19, changes in health care, limitations of social relationships and new work processes.
