Number of Cancer Cases with Diagnosis Codes

The Diagnosis Code tables were generated for all patients in the SEER file as well as breast, prostate, lung and colorectal cancer patients with MEDPAR, NCH and Outpatient claims. The SEER file includes SEER-linked cases diagnosed from 1975 to 2017, but only SEER cases diagnosed from 2000 to 2017 from the expansion registries: Greater California, New Jersey, Louisiana, Kentucky, Greater Georgia, Idaho, New York, and Massachusetts. These tables are limited to those diagnosis codes with 11 or more patients in any given calendar year. These tables should be used as aides to give you an estimate of the prevalence of medical diagnoses among the SEER-Medicare cancer cases.
