What is the National Cancer Registry and Why is it Important?

The National Cancer Registry collects and maintains complete and accurate records about your medical history, cancer diagnosis, treatments, and follow-up care. This data helps your doctor evaluate treatment options for your type of cancer, and allows your doctors and caregivers to track every step of your treatment.

The data collected helps researchers analyze how many people have different types of cancer. These researchers have no personal information about you, including your name. Only your treatment team can access the Cancer Registry. Your personal information is completely confidential and secure.

By bringing this information together in one place, it helps doctors and patients across the country get the best cancer care for their individual cases.
