The cancer dictionary
The cancer site dictionary used in NORDCAN is based on the International Classification of Disease and is given by codes used in the 10th revision. Since the original data was coded according to earlier versions of the Classification, it was necessary to combine some site codes in ICD-10 to have comparable data for the time period presented. Users that need finer breakdown by sites may consult the registries to obtain such data. The order of diagnosis can be sorted according to ICD-10 or label names.
