Onondaga County Cancer Services Program Continues to Offer Free Cancer Screenings
October 10, 2018

The Onondaga County Health Department (OCHD) will continue to provide cancer screening services for uninsured and underinsured residents with support from the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH). Since 1987, the Cancer Services Program (CSP) of Onondaga County has collaborated with the NYSDOH, local healthcare providers, and community agencies to offer free screening and follow up services for breast, cervical, and colon cancers to uninsured and underinsured residents of Onondaga County. Onondaga County Health Commissioner, Dr. Indu Gupta states, “While cancer is the second leading cause of death in Onondaga County, early detection and treatment often leads to better health outcomes. I am so pleased that the Onondaga County Cancer Services Program will be able to continue offering free cancer screenings for Onondaga residents without health insurance or who have limited coverage.”

Free mammograms and Pap tests are available through the Onondaga County Cancer Services Program (CSP) for women between the ages of 40 and 64 who do not have health insurance or who experience other barriers to completing their screenings. Free colorectal cancer screening is also available for men and women between the ages of 50 and 64 without health insurance. Services are available at many healthcare provider sites throughout the city of Syracuse and Onondaga County. Call 315-435-3653 or visit the CSP website at ongov.net/health/cancerscreening.html to register for your free screening.
