Two in five Iowans will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes. Cancer is a major burden in Iowa and throughout the U.S. Reducing the nation’s cancer burden requires the cooperation of many people, including physicians, researchers, public health professionals, policy makers and advocates, among others. All these people rely on cancer data in their effort to reduce this burden. Because of the critical need for data, cancer is a reportable disease in all 50 states. In Iowa, cancer data are collected by the State Health Registry of Iowa, also known as the Iowa Cancer Registry (ICR).
