Arkansas Cancer Registry
Cancer is the second leading cause of death behind heart disease in Arkansas. The most frequently diagnosed cancers in the state include lung, colorectal, breast cancer among women, and prostate cancer among men. Due to the increasing burden, it will be important for the Arkansas Central Cancer Registry to collect cancer information for surveillance, to conduct cancer investigations, to assist initiatives for early detection and prevention, and to supply data for research and policy endeavors.
Since 1996, through funding from the National Program of Cancer Registry (NPCR) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the ACCR has been collecting population-based cancer incidence data among residents in Arkansas. The ACCR collects high quality and complete data, and has been consistently certified as Registry of Distinction by NPCR and a gold-standard registry designated by the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR).
