Welcome to the New York State Cancer Consortium!

The New York State Cancer Consortium (NYSCC) is a network of individuals and organizations that collaborate to address the cancer burden in New York State. The NYSCC and its members are guided by the strategic plan, the NYS Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan 2012-2017, which outlines objectives and suggested strategies to reduce the burden of cancer in NYS. We hope you use this site to learn more about cancer in New York and to further your own organization's efforts to decrease the cancer burden for all New Yorkers.

From September 2010 through March 2011, the New York State Prostate Cancer Coalition and the LGBT Cancer Project– Out With Cancer conducted interviews with gay prostate cancer patients in New York City. These interviews were done to determine if disclosing sexual identity made any difference in the length of time patients took to make treatment choice. Gay men represent approximately 5% of all men presenting with prostate cancer in NYS. To find out more, click on the link.
