Why is cancer data important?
There are more than 100 different kinds of cancer. Breast cancer will develop in approximately one in eight women during their lifetime. Environmental exposures may increase the risk for particular cancers, such as asbestos and lung cancer. Washington Tracking Network (WTN) makes cancer incidence data easy to access and use.
WTN includes data on the following common cancers: brain and nervous system, breast cancer in females, child cancer such as leukemia; digestive system, leukemia and lymphoma, melanoma, respiratory, thyroid, lung, and urinary system.
