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.
