Cancer is a general term often used to describe a group of separate diseases such as breast cancer, colon cancer, and lung cancer.

Cancer is more common than people realize as 1 out of 2 males and 1 out of 3 females will develop cancer at some point in their lifetime.

CCBH keeps track of cancer occurrences among people living in Cuyahoga County to determine if the amount of cancer is changing.

Cancer Cluster Inquiries

Cancer clusters are defined by the Ohio Department of Health as a greater-than-expected number of cancer cases occurring within a group of people in a geographic area over a specific period of time (e.g., over a five year time frame).

Clusters typically include cases of one type of cancer, a rare type of cancer, or a cancer occurring in a demographic group (e.g., an age group) that generally is not affected.

CCBH assists communities with cancer concerns by providing education and statistical review as requested.
