Cancer screening help offered
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and women are encouraged to get their mammograms.
Regular cancer screenings can help find cancer early when treatment may be easier.
Some women may have lost their jobs and their health insurance because of the pandemic. So how can these women get cancer screening? This is where the Cancer Services Program of Fulton, Montgomery and Schenectady Counties can help.
The CSP offers free breast cancer screenings to uninsured women ages 40 and over.
The program also offers free cervical cancer screening to women ages 40 and older, and free colon cancer screenings to uninsured men and women ages 50 and over.
If any follow-up tests are needed, the CSP will provide those tests too. If breast, cervical, or colon cancer is found, the program will help enroll people who are eligible in the NYS Medicaid Cancer Treatment Program for full Medicaid coverage during treatment.
Call the CSP at (518) 770-6816 to determine eligibility for the program or to get more information or email [email protected] .
