Prostate, breast, thyroid and lung cancers are the most commonly diagnosed cancers in New York state, outside of New York City. They are also the top diagnoses among cancer patients being treated at Upstate University Hospital.

Neurological, kidney and bladder cancers affect far fewer Upstate New Yorkers. Yet, many people with these cancers seek care at Upstate because of its strong reputation.
