The Texas Cancer Registry (TCR) is a statewide, population-based registry that serves as the foundation for measuring the cancer burden in Texas, comprehensive cancer control efforts, health disparities, progress in prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship, and also supports a wide variety of cancer-related research. These priorities cannot be adequately addressed in public health, academic institutions, or the private sector without timely, complete, and accurate cancer data.

The TCR is one of the largest cancer registries in the United States, and currently meets the National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) high quality data standards, and is Gold Certified by the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR). 

The purpose and ultimate goal of the TCR is to collect, maintain, and disseminate the highest quality cancer data that will contribute towards cancer prevention and control—improving diagnoses, treatment, survival, and quality of life for all cancer patients.
