Tennessee Cancer Registry Data

Cancer Data, Data Request, and Publication

The Tennessee Cancer Registry (TCR) strives to present the most complete, accurate, and timely reports of cancer data in the state of Tennessee; however, there is a lag time from the day the information is reported to the state until the information is processed and ready for release. Because this information includes incidence, stage at diagnosis, first course of treatment and vital status, it is a valuable tool in the evaluation of progress toward cancer prevention and control.
