Cause-Specific Cancer Survival

Cause-Specific Cancer Survival

Cause-specific survival adjusts the observed survival for competing causes of death by only counting deaths due to the specific cancer site. The Texas Cancer Registry (TCR) uses a specially created SEER Cause-Specific Death Classification variable that includes death from the specific cancer site, as well as any other causes of death that are likely to also be directly due to the specific cancer site. Deaths from other, unrelated causes are censored.
