(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 4 – The Italian Association of Medical
Oncology (AIOM) said Thursday that around 3.6 million people are
alive in Italy today having been diagnosed with some form of
tumour, an increase of 37% on the number of cancer survivors the
nation had 10 years ago.
    But the association also raised the alarm about the impact of
the COVID-19 pandemic on the fight against cancer.
    It said more than two million fewer screening tests were done in
Italy in the first nine months of 2020.
    “Delays in early diagnosis can cause an increase in mortality
rates,” said AIOM President Giordano Beretta.
    “The prevention programmes must be restarted as soon as possible
and financed with more funding”. (ANSA).
