It is impossible to say for sure now whether the coronavirus infection affects the occurrence of oncological diseases. It takes at least 10 years to get reliable results. Usually, carcinogens lead to cancer after just that amount of time. At the same time, doctor Nikolai Zhukov expressed the point of view that COVID-19 is unlikely to provoke oncology. The risk is low. "This is unlikely. No mechanisms have been described that could trigger the oncological process in connection with this virus,”the expert noted. But the coronavirus is quite capable of worsening the course of any disease, according to the doctor, including cancer. If a person is diagnosed with a large tumor and needs medication with serious side effects, then covid at this time is likely to lead to a severe course of the disease.
