Cancer information management professionals are data management experts who find, interpret and record a wide range of demographic and medical information on people with cancer. Cancer registrars capture a complete summary of patient history, diagnosis, treatment and status for every cancer patient in the United States. The information is submitted to state and national registries for use in research, treatment and prevention. Cancer registry is a vital contribution toward the successful treatment of cancer.
