Cancer Registry

Cancer is a chronic disease affecting thousands of Vermonters. Cancer Registry data are used to monitor efforts to reduce the burden of cancers among all Vermonters. We collect information about all cancers, except certain skin and non-invasive cervical cancers, and all benign brain-related tumors that are diagnosed in Vermont. It is part of a statewide effort to reduce the impact of cancer on individuals, families and communities.

State law requires physicians and hospitals to report information about cancers and benign brain-related tumors to the Vermont Department of Health. Through interstate agreements, information about Vermonters diagnosed or treated in other states is also included in Vermont’s registry. The registry does not collect information directly from patients.

For Reporting Facilities

All health care facilities diagnosing or treating cancer or benign brain-related tumors in the State of Vermont are required by the Vermont Cancer Registry Law, 18 V.S.A. §§ 151-157, to report information to the Vermont Cancer Registry. All cases must be reported within 180 days after the date of the first contact with the patient.

All cases must be reported within 180 days after the date of the first contact with the patient.
