¿Está pensando en no hacerse la mamografía este año a causa de la pandemia? Usted no es la única. El COVID-19 ha causado que muchísimas mujeres dejen de hacerse su mamografía anual. Antes del Coronavirus, las mamografías ya eran una fuente de miedo y ansiedad para muchas, pero no podemos olvidar que juegan un papel importante en nuestro cuidado médico.  Le invitamos a un panel informativo sobre las precauciones que los centros de mamografía están tomando para proteger su salud, responderemos sus preguntas y le daremos detalles de lo que pasa en la cita para que nada la tome por sorpresa. También, hablaremos sobre cómo lidiar con el estrés y la ansiedad de ir al examen durante la pandemia.
