What are the incidence and mortality rates of cancers in Delaware?

Tracking cancer incidence and treatment in Delaware

Cancer affects millions of Americans yearly. Cancer incidence continues to grow among the U.S. population.

Impacts from cancer include premature death; lower quality of life; comorbid disorders; economic burden; and stress (financial, emotional, social, and mental) on the patient, family, and friends.

In addressing the cancer burden, surveillance is essential. Surveillance is necessary to assess burden and to implement cancer control and outreach.

Surveillance in a central cancer registry also allows research of cancer trends and treatment on a population level.

Registry data informs policymakers, funding, cancer control efforts, researchers, outreach programs, providers, and the public.
