About these data:
The Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons presents these data to help patients make educated decisions about their cancer care. The data include the number and percent of cancer cases diagnosed by body part and American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) stage (Stage I, II, III, IV, not applicable or stageable, and unknown). For more information about cancer staging visit the AJCC Web site. This information may help you prepare questions for the cancer care team-for example, about their experience in treating specific cancers and what the next steps might be. The CoC encourages you to review these data in conjunction with data provided by the American Cancer Society's (ACS) Cancer Facts and Figures and information on your cancer treatment options provided by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN).
Choosing a treatment center:
Many people might assume that the best place to have their treatment is in a hospital that has treated the largest number of patients with a similar medical situation. However, this decision is complex because there are many factors that influence the number of patients seen at a hospital, and the number of patients does not necessarily reflect the quality of care provided by a hospital. Some things that affect the numbers include, but are not limited to, where the patients live, their socioeconomic status, their disease type and severity at diagnosis, and the experience of the doctors, nurses, and other health care workers caring for the patient. Be sure to consult with your cancer care team before deciding on your personal course of action.
