Welcome to the website of the Swiss Childhood Cancer Registry!

The Swiss Childhood Cancer Registry (SCCR) is a national, population-based cancer registry for children. It collects data on new cancer diagnoses and concurrent medical conditions and documents the treatment and long term follow-up. Through this it contributes to understanding causes of cancer diseases in children with the ultimate goal to prevent them, and it helps to continuously improve treatments and increase cure rates while aiming to avoid or minimise late effects.
