Number of Cancer Patients with Diagnosis Codes

The Diagnosis Code (ICD-9) tables were generated for all patients in the PEDSF file as well as breast, prostate, lung and colorectal cancer patients with MEDPAR, NCH and Outpatient claims. The PEDSF file includes SEER-linked cases diagnosed from 1973 to 2013, but only SEER cases diagnosed from 2000 to 2013 from the expansion registries: Greater California, New Jersey, Louisiana, Kentucky, and Greater Georgia. These tables are limited to those diagnosis codes with 5 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.
