William Mattar Law offices wants to remind everybody that March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Megan Lederhouse, outreach coordinator says they are partnering with the New York State Department of Health’s Cancer Services Program (CSP) to support those affected in our community.

She says some facts you may not know about colon cancer such as colon cancer is the third most diagnosed cancer in both men and women. It is also the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States and 90% of those diagnosed have no family history.

Who should be screened for colon cancer? All men and women ages 50 – 75 should be screened, however, at risk men and women may have to start earlier.

How can someone be screened for cancer? Megan Lederhouse says the Cancer Services Program (CSP) offers free screenings for eligible uninsured New York residents. William Mattar Law offices is joining the CSP to inform the community that these services are available.
