Can COVID-19 vaccines cause breast cancer?
There are no data that suggest that COVID-19 vaccines cause cancer, lead to recurrence or to disease progression.
Can a COVID-19 vaccine affect a mammogram?
There is no link between breast cancer and the COVID vaccines. However, because swollen lymph nodes in the armpit are a known side effect of the vaccines, the CDC recommends a waiting period of at least four weeks for most women between vaccination and a mammogram.
Is it normal for lymph nodes to swell after COVID-19 vaccinations? Swollen lymph nodes are a common immune system reaction to vaccinations and can also occur after getting the flu shot or HPV vaccine. The swelling typically subsides within a few weeks and occurs on the same side of the body where the vaccination was administered.
Are long term side effects possible with COVID-19 vaccination?
Serious side effects that could cause a long-term health problem are extremely unusual following any vaccination, including COVID-19 vaccination. The benefits of COVID-19 vaccination outweigh the known and potential risks.
