Prostate cancer added to WTC illness list

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has added prostate cancer to the list of diseases eligible for coverage under the Zadroga Act.

The Patrolmen's Benevolent Association filed a petition earlier this year to have it added. The union said first responders have a higher than expected rate of prostate cancer.

The administrator of the September 11 Victims Compensation Fund examined the petition and approved the addition. The ruling will be published in the Federal Register on September 19, 2013.
