National Cancer Data Base (NCDB)
NCDB is a nationwide, facility-based, oncology data set that captures 75 percent of all newly diagnosed cancer cases in the United States annually. Data collected include patient characteristics, tumor staging and histology characteristics, type of first course treatment administered, disease recurrence and survival information. The site is the result of a partnership between American College of Surgeons and National Cancer Society.

This Web site provides access to information on the occurrence of cancer worldwide; compiled by the Descriptive Epidemiology Group (DEP) of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).
