We are entrusted with managing the Queensland Cancer Registry on behalf of Queensland Health.
The Registry receives notifications about cancer in Queensland, providing an accurate picture of the impact of cancer, and the nature and extent of cancer throughout the State. Our data is used to help improve cancer prevention and control – to improve treatments and survival rates for Queenslanders with cancer. Together with other State and Territory data, Queensland Cancer Registry data is used to compile national statistics on cancer incidence and mortality.

The latest statistical report from the Queensland Cancer Registry is Cancer in Queensland Incidence Mortality Survival Prevalence 1982 to 2013
In Australia, cancer is a notifiable disease and is the only major disease where an almost complete coverage of incidence data is available. Current legislation (PDF) requires health institutions in Queensland to notify the Registry about cancer diagnoses and deaths within one month.
