Why Screen:

Breast Cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death among women in New York State. Nearly 14,000 NYS women are newly diagnosed with breast cancer and approximately 3,000 die from the disease annually. An indirect number of deaths from breast cancer occur among low-income and minority women over the age of 40 who may not understand the benefits of early detection, or have access to screening.

Although Cervical Cancer represents a smaller threat to the women of NYS than breast cancer, there are still deaths from this preventable disease each year, many among older women. Cervical cancer is diagnosed in approximately 950 women in NYS each year and about 290 NYS women die from the disease annually. Rural women find access to cervical cancer screening services to be a problem. There is also a misconception among older women that it is not necessary to continue pelvic examinations and pap testing beyond child-bearing years.

Cancers of the colon & rectum together are referred to as Colorectal Cancer (CRC). CRC is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among both men and women in NYS. There are approximately 11,000 new cases of CRC diagnosed each year in NYS and about 4,000 men and women die from the disease annually. Fortunately, recent studies show that regular and appropriate screening and polyp removal can prevent colorectal cancer when detected early.
