Cancer is scary. When people have cancer, life changes for them and for the people who care about them. These changes can make activities of daily living difficult to handle.

The Future Holds Promise

Scientists throughout the country are studying possible causes and cures. Also, there is hope for the future in early detection and prevention.

Current diagnostic and treatment techniques are being refined and new methods are under investigation.

Information Is Available

Cancer information is available from the American Cancer Society at 1-800-ACS-2345.

Information on cancer rates is available from the NJSCR at 609-588-3500.

Cancer

Tracking the occurrence or incidence of cancers so we can learn more about their prevention and treatment is the job of the New Jersey State Cancer Registry (NJSCR).

The New Jersey State Cancer Registry (NJSCR) works with hospitals, physicians, universities and research scientists to collect and analyze cancer data on all cancers occurring in New Jersey residents. Epidemiologists at the NJSCR monitor and study trends in incidence, survival, and treatment on various types of cancers. Facts and figures are compiled and shared with county, state and federal agencies interested in cancer. Strict confidentiality of identifying information is maintained at all times.
