Reports of the SCCCR
"Cancer in South Carolina, USA 1996-2005: South Carolina Central Cancer Registry Ten Year Report" is the first report from the SCCCR containing ten years of cancer data (1996-2005).
This monograph covers the first full ten years of cancer surveillance in South Carolina, and includes data and statistics for cancer incidence, mortality, and survival. This report focuses on fifteen major types of cancer: oral, esophagus, colon/rectum, liver, pancreas, lung, melanoma, female breast, cervix, prostate, bladder, brain, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, adult leukemia, and childhood leukemia. Statistics are also broken down by county.

This report presents data on cancer incidence and mortality; and provides information on cancer risk factors, stage of disease, screening, and prevention and treatment for thirteen cancer sites: bladder, breast, cervix, colon/rectum, leukemia, lung, melanoma, oral/pharynx, ovarian, pancreas, prostate, NHL, and uterine. There is a special section on Childhood cancer, which provides detailed information on the three major categories of childhood cancer: leukemia, central nervous system, and lymphomas.
"South Carolina Cancer Facts and Figures 2001-2002" is the first report from the SCCCR containing combined years of cancer incidence (1996-1998) and projected cancer estimates for 2002.

It is modeled after the American Cancer Societys annual "Cancer Facts and Figures" publication, which details cancer incidence and mortality across the nation.

Additional special sections in the report include Childhood Cancer, Oral/Pharynx cancer, and a Modifiable Risk Factors section, which focuses on tobacco use, diet, and physical activity.
Cancer in South Carolina - The Reports of the SCCCR
