Texas Cancer Registry

The Texas Cancer Registry, administered by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), is the state wide 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.  With the expansion of grant funding for cancer prevention activities and new research grant funding across the state through CPRIT, statistical data collected on cancer occurrences, deaths, and survival through the registry is even more critical to measuring the impact of prevention activities and research discoveries on the lives of Texans.The linkage between CPRIT funded programs and statistical data on cancer occurrences is so critical that CPRIT and DSHS are co-locating Texas Cancer Registry operations at CPRIT.
