FREE Mammograms for Women Without Health Insurance

10/13 

FREE Mammograms For Women Without Health Insurance

 

When was your last mammogram? On October 17th celebrate National Mammography Day by scheduling your mammogram. Women between the ages of 40 and 64 who do not have health insurance may qualify for a free mammogram through the Onondaga County Cancer Services Program (CSP). If you are an uninsured woman ages 40 to 64, call 435-3653 or visit the CSP website at http://www.ongov.net/health/cancerscreening.html to register today.

 Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer detected among women in the United States.  About 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime.  Routine screenings are an important step in the early detection and successful treatment of breast cancer.

 All women are at risk for breast cancer, but as women grow older their risk increases. Besides age, there are other factors that may increase a woman’s chance of developing breast cancer. Some of these factors include having a family history of breast cancer, having inherited changes on specific genes such as the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, never having had children, or having a first child after the age of 30.  Breast cancer may not cause any symptoms in its early stages, however as it progresses symptoms may include:

  • §        a lump or thickening in the breast
  • §        pain in the breast or in the nipple
  • §        nipple discharge
  • §        dimpling of the breast skin
  • §        flaky, red, or swollen skin anywhere on the breast.

 Screening for breast cancer includes a clinical breast exam and a mammogram. A clinical breast exam is an exam of a woman’s breasts by a healthcare provider that allows him/her to feel for any lumps or abnormalities. A mammogram is an x-ray of the breast.

 In addition, women ages 40 to 64 who do not have health insurance may also be eligible for a free Pap test through the CSP. Free colorectal cancer screening for eligible women and men ages 50 to 64 who do not have health insurance is offered as well. These services are available at numerous healthcare provider sites throughout the city of Syracuse and OnondagaCounty. Please call 435-3653 today to see if you qualify!
