Tennessee Cancer Registry

Doctor Consoling Patient The Tennessee Cancer Registry (TCR) was established in 1983 by the Department of Health in response to a state law (T.C.A. 68-1-1001) that made cancer a reportable condition. The registry strives to collect comprehensive, timely and accurate information on all Tennessee residents diagnosed with and/or treated for cancer. 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.
