Lady advice to patient to wait 4 to 6 week after vaccination

Annual cancer screenings during the pandemic have been delayed and often missed. The physicians of Southern Cancer Center want to stress how important these regular screenings are in the early diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

However, in some individuals, the mRNA COVID-19 vaccinations may cause localized lymph node swelling that may appear abnormal or uncertain on imaging studies. As a result, when it does not delay care, waiting 4-6 weeks after vaccine completion should minimize the chance of false abnormal screening mammography and ultrasound readings. As always, if SCC patients have any questions, please call our office and speak with a member of your care team, 251.625.6896.
