GLOSSARY OF CANCER TERMS AGE-ADJUSTED RATES: Rates have been mathematically weighted to allow comparisons of populations with different age distributions. Adjustment is usually made to a standard population. In this report the Census 2000 U.S. standard population is used. AGE-SPECIFIC RATES: Rates are calculated using the number of cases occurring in a specified age group, divided by the population for that age group. AVERAGE ANNUAL RATE: Cases for a given number of years are added together and divided by the numbers of years to give an average annual number. This number of cases is then divided by the population to determine the rate. BENIGN: A growth which generally is not life threatening. BIOPSY: The removal of a sample of tissue to be examined under a microscope to look for cancer cells. CANCER: A harmful growth of cells that if allowed to keep growing will interfere with body function and eventually cause death. Cancer is also known as malignant neoplasm or malignant tumor. CARCINOGEN: A cancer causing substance. CORPUS UTERI: Body of the uterus, in contrast to the cervix. DYSPLASIA: Abnormal development of cells which may precede the development of cancer. GENETIC: Inherited; having to do with cell information passed from parents to children through DNA. HYPERPLASIA: Abnormal growth of cells resulting in the increase in size of a tissue or organ. Hyperplasia may become cancerous. INCIDENCE: New cases of a specific disease occurring in a specified time period, usually expressed as new cases per 100,000 persons per year. IN SITU: The growth, tumor, cancer has not extended beyond the level of tissue in which it began. INVASIVE: The growth extends beyond where it started, into other tissues and organs in the body. LEUKEMIAS: Cancers of the organs that make the blood, bone marrow and lymph. LOCALIZED: Cancer found only in the organ where the cancer started. MALIGNANT: A tumor that is cancerous and has the ability to spread to other parts of the body. METASTASIS: The spread of cancer from one part of the body to another part of the body. MORBIDITY: Illness or disease. MORTALITY: Numbers of deaths occurring in a certain time period usually expressed as number of deaths per 100,000 persons. Mortality data are based on death certificates. NEOPLASM: Any growth, benign or malignant. A tumor.

ONCOLOGIST: A doctor who specializes in cancer treatment. POLYP: A small, noncancerous growth in the mucous membrane, most commonly found in the colon. PRIMARY CANCER: The organ of the body in which the cancer is thought to have started. RATE: The number of occurrences of a disease in a population in a given time period. RATE RATIO: Comparison of one rate with another to show how many times larger or smaller one is compared to the other. Generally the rate in the population of interest is compared with that of a standard population (for which data are available and published). RISK: An individual’s chance of developing cancer. RISK FACTORS: Factors which increase an individual’s chance of getting cancer. These may genetic, environmental, cultural or behavioral. SCREENING: Tests or examinations done to detect cancer very early, before the person is aware of the cancer or before the person has symptoms. SEER (STATISTICS, EPIDEMIOLOGY AND END RESULTS): A program sponsored by the National Cancer Institute designed to collect very detailed information on cancer occurrence, treatment and outcome in select states and regions in the U.S. SITE: In the cancer field, site refers to a body organ. SITE-SPECIFIC RATE: Rate or risk of developing cancer in a specific site (body organ). STAGE OF DISEASE: The disease (cancer) is categorized by how far the disease has spread. Generally, the terms local, regional, or distant are used. More detailed staging systems are also available specific to the cancer site. SURVIVAL RATE: The proportion of patients alive following diagnosis of cancer at a specific time period after diagnosis. Often expressed as the percent of patients alive after five years or the five year survival rate. TUMOR: A general term used for a growth, malignant or benign. TUMOR REGISTRAR: The person who collects and reports tumor registry information; t hose who have had special training and an examination to become a Certified Tumor Registrars (CTR). TUMOR REGISTRY: A standard system of collecting information on patients with cancer. Benign tumors are usually not entered into the registry.
