About Us

The Oregon State Cancer Registry (OSCaR) was established in August 1995, after the Oregon Legislature unanimously passed legislation making cancer a reportable disease.

OSCaR is a statewide, population-based registry that collects and analyzes information about cancer cases occurring in Oregon. The ability to identify who is diagnosed statewide is important in the development of ways to prevent and control cancer.


Quality Cancer Data for a Healthier Oregon


The purpose of the registry shall be to provide information to design, target, monitor, facilitate, and evaluate efforts to determine the causes or sources of cancer among the residents of Oregon and to reduce the burden of cancer and benign tumors in Oregon.

OSCaR is part of the Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention Section in the Center for Prevention and Health Promotion. Search the Public Health Program Directory to see all programs in the Oregon Public Health Division.
