      Doctors Warn of Skin Cancer Screening Crisis

      Mary Bashir, a 48-year-old Boston-area high school teacher, is no stranger to skin cancer screenings. The beauty marks dotting her skin have always made her hyper-vigilant about check-ups.

      But when she noticed a red dot on her nose -- about the size of a Sharpie tip -- she had a difficult decision to make. It was the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and she wasn’t even going into grocery stores, let alone medical settings.

      COVID-19 can damage the kidneys and increase patients' risk of needing kidney dialysis, researchers report.

      The study authors also warned that doctors should prepare for a significant rise in chronic kidney disease cases due to the pandemic.

      For the study, the investigators analyzed data from nearly 4,000 COVID-19 patients, aged 18 and older, hospitalized at the Mount Sinai Health System in New York City between Feb. 27 and May 30, 2020.
