Kicking Off Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Dr. Justin Favaro on Good Day Charlotte
October 1st marked the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. FOX 46’s Good Day Charlotte brought on Dr. Justin Favaro, MD, PhD, from Oncology Specialists of Charlotte to kick things off. Anchor Brigida Mack and Dr. Favaro discussed how the pandemic is affecting breast cancer screenings. “At the beginning of the pandemic patients weren’t coming in for their screening mammograms. They weren’t coming into the doctor for many things and that’s extremely dangerous. Thankfully now more people are coming in for their screening mammograms and fortunately their lives can be saved by getting those mammograms,” said Dr. Favaro.
