Abstract

A quality assessment study of CINA Deluxe, 1995-1999 Morphology Data was conducted for all invasive cancers and in situ breast cancer. Using SEER-Stat, ICD-O-2 histology and tumor grade data from 14 participating National Program for Cancer Registries (NPCR) registries were collectively compared to those from seven Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program registries selected to reflect the age, gender, and racial structure of the NPCR case population. A total of 2,040,435 microscopically confirmed cancers were available for analysis. Principal findings were: • Overall microscopic confirmation rates were 94% for both NPCR and SEER. With the exception of leukemia, site-specific frequencies of microscopic confirmation were similar for NPCR and SEER. • NPCR and SEER each coded 0.5% of all cancers combined to Neoplasm Not Otherwise Specified (NOS) and 3% to Carcinoma NOS. NPCR coded a comparatively higher percentage of total cancers as Squamous cell carcinoma NOS and Adenocarcinoma NOS. • Site-specific frequency distributions of histologic group were similar for NPCR and SEER. • Site-specific frequency distributions of common histologic type were similar for NPCR and SEER, particularly for the major cancers. • The site-specific frequency of tumor grading was similar for NPCR and SEER, with the exception of in situ breast cancer. • Site-specific frequency distributions of tumor grade were similar for NPCR and SEER, and largely indistinguishable for many of the commonly graded cancers, including prostate, urinary bladder, colon, rectum, corpus, and invasive breast.
