Definitely talk to your oncologist when you face such an important question. Ask him or her if untreated cancer is more dangerous or if the chemo would be more dangerous for some reason. Talk to your doctor also about the risk of coming in to the lab for the chemo (being around others), then make a reasoned decision informed by the medical science.
There's a bit of confusion on this topic. Everyone is at equal risk of catching the virus. Those at higher risk are not a higher risk of getting the disease but are of higher risk of having a harder time of it if they do get it. But if you're taking chemo you're at higher risk on both counts, because chemo diminishes the strength of your immune system intentionally. Current treatments for cancer and for other diseases that are wholly or in part due to a problem with the immune system will often suppress the immune system response either intentionally or as a side effect. Those with weakened immune systems are more prone to getting anything, not just the corona virus. But you still would have to be exposed to it to get it. If you do get it, you are at a higher risk of getting it bad, but so are many people for reasons doctors can't figure out. What I've heard from experts, and I'm not one, is that some people who have slow growing cancers have been asked to delay cancer treatment but those with imminent problems have to do what they have to do. So while it is risky to continue chemo right now, it's also risky to have uncontrolled cancer. If this is the only mechanism you have, you do what you have to do and take extra precautions to avoid getting not only covid but any disease. As the above says, your oncologist is your guide here, he or she will know the best course. Worrying about it won't help any, so if you are able, try to just focus on things the way you did before covid just as you did with the flu and all the other diseases floating around out there, which you ignored because you need your focus to be on staying strong and getting through the cancer. I hope it all works out for you. Peace.
May be because the immunity of cancer patients will be on lower side , And hence they may be effected .
The most interesting part of this is that the cytokine storms that are said to be the biggest killer with this disease come from strong immune systems, and one of the treatments they were thinking about in the early days of Covid is to deliberately weaken the immune system so it doesn't produce that reaction. If I had cancer, I would be less worried about having a weaker immune-system response (if I got Covid-19) than I would simply be worried about the many insults and injuries of cancer possibly giving the disease places to latch on. Again, please talk with the doctor.
