ABSTRACT

The worldwide medical community is striving to pursue the most appropriate clinical choices in the worst event of pandemic of the modern times [1], with over 1 million patients affected by COVID-19 (i.e., swab positive patients with or without symptoms) reported so far [1]. In this context, the aim of the ideal management of cancer patients is to achieve the best possible balance between the two different issues to be considered, which include the risk of cancer progression and the risk of


infectious disease.
