With about 480,000 new cases per year, cancer is one of the most common diseases in Germany. It is to differentiate between epidemiological and clinical cancer registration.

The current area-wide establishment of clinical cancer registration all throughout Germany is a great chance for more transparency and improvement of the oncological care.
