Texas Cancer Registry - The SOURCE for Cancer Data in Texas.

The Texas Cancer Registry (TCR) is a statewide population-based registry that serves as the foundation for measuring the Texas cancer burden, comprehensive cancer control efforts, health disparities, progress in prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship, as well as supports a wide variety of cancer-related research. These priorities cannot be adequately addressed in public health, academic institutions, or the private sector without timely, complete, and accurate cancer data.

The TCR is one of the largest cancer registries in the United States, and currently meets the National Program of Central Cancer Registries (NPCR), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention high quality data standards and is Gold Certified by the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries. The TCR is also one of only ten Comparative Effectiveness Specialized Registries in the US, designated by the NPCR.

The ultimate goal and purpose of the TCR is to collect, maintain, and disseminate the highest quality cancer data that will contribute towards cancer prevention and control, improving diagnoses, treatment, survival, and quality of life for all cancer patients.
