Use of cancer registry grows

The Cayman Islands still does not have a mandatory registry of its cancer cases, but the use of a voluntarily registry has grown to around three-hundred people.

The registry was created in 20-10, to track trends in types of cancers being diagnosed and treated and patient demographics for various types of cancer.
Because health care providers are not required by government to report their cancer cases, it’s taken awhile for the registry to build a useable base of statistics.

“So presently, there is very little data on cancer trends in the Cayman Islands, we still don’t know how many people are getting diagnosed every year or which cancers are the most common and we really need a foundation of information like that if we are going to do everything possible in terms of prevention and management.” Said Cancer Registry’s, Amanda Nicholson
