Sabrina Mosseau, BN, RN, OCN, Executive Director of New York Oncology Hematology discusses new data from the National Cancer Institute, warning that 10,000 cancer- related deaths could occur over the next five years because people are skipping screenings now - out of fear of COVID-19.

Mosseau interviewed by Benita Zahn, of NewsChannel 13, outlines important questions to ask your health care provider before your appointment, so you can feel safe about getting a mammogram, colonoscopy or other screenings.

If you've lost your job and health insurance during the pandemic, you can also learn more about low or no cost screenings through the state's cancer screening services.
