To better address the burden of cancer, we need data. Since 1973, SEER Registries have collected data on cancer throughout the United States.
We began with a few registries in four states and began expanding to other areas to include more representation from all racial and ethnic groups so that we can better prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer.
Over time, SEER has become a leading source of information on cancer incidence and survival in the United States.
