Collecting cancer information improves our cancer statistics.

The Delaware Cancer Registry collects information about new cancer cases, cancer treatment, and cancer deaths. All hospitals, laboratories, physicians, and other health care providers are required by state law to report all newly diagnosed or treated cancer cases to the Registry. Registry data is used to monitor cancer trends, promote research to increase survival, guide policy planning, and respond to Delaware residents’ cancer concerns. Patient information is kept absolutely confidential and secure.
