    2.PERSON_ID (*PK)
    3.TUMOR_NO (*PK)

1 CENTER_NO number (2,0) Required:true
Center Identification Number
Allowable Values
11 Cancer Care Ontario
12 USC Consortium
13 University of Melbourne
14 Cancer Research Center of Hawaii
15 Mayo Clinic
16 Fred Hutchinson, Seattle
17 Northern California (NCCC)

2 PERSON_ID (*PK) number (12,0) Required:true
Number that uniquely identifies an individual. *PERSON_ID + TUMOR_NO are the primary key for this table.

3 TUMOR_NO (*PK) number (2,0) Required:true
Computer generated sequential number, starting with "1", assigned to each tumor for a given individual when entered into local system. No adjustment is made when a tumor is deleted from the system. Tumor numbers are never reused. Tumor_no is a machine-generated value that has no implied meaning such as sequence of diagnosis. The first tumor that is entered into the system is assigned 1, the second tumor entered into the system assigned 2, etc. For example, if a person has two tumors and tumor_no 2 is deleted, that number should never be reused for that individual. Should that person develop a second primary, that tumor should have tumor_no set to 3. *PERSON_ID + TUMOR_NO are the primary key for this table.
This tumor is also mapped throughout the Registry to all block samples and molecular testing for that PERSON_ID.

4 SITE string (4) Required:true
Location where this tumor originated in as much detail as is known and for which a code is provided in ICD-O-3.

Error Description
SITE must be C000-C809

5 LATERAL number (1,0) Required:true
Laterality of tumor. Side of the body in which the tumor originated. Note: laterality of left and right is not applicable for all sites. Coding for this field is based on SEER, NAACCR and AcoS guidelines.
Allowable Values
0 Not a paired site
1 Right
2 Left
3 Unilateral, NOS
4 Bilateral
5 Midline
9 Paired site, no information

6 HISTO number (5,0) Required:true
First four digits of the ICD-O-3 morphology code which designates the histologic type of this tumor. Coding for this field is based on SEER, NAACCR and AcoS guidelines.
Allowable Values
8000 to 9990 Range
8000 No specific histologic type information
72860 Keratoacanthoma

7 BEHAV number (1,0) Required:false
ICD-O-3 5th digit behavior code. Coding for this field is based on SEER, NAACCR and AcoS guidelines.
Allowable Values
0 Benign
1 Uncertain whether benign or malignant; borderline; low malignant potential
2 Carcinoma in situ
3 Malignant (Invasive)

8 AGEDX number (3,0) Required:true
Age at diagnosis.
Allowable Values
0 to 130 or 998, 999 Range
998 Less than 1 year
999 Unknown

9 DXDATE string (8) Required:true
Date of diagnosis.
Date Value Check
The date must follow to the following format:

Format YYYYMMDD. Must consist of valid date.
Components of date should be right justified and zero filled.
MM = 01 - 12, 88, 99
DD = 01 - 31, 88, 99
YYYY = Minimum year - system date year, 8888, 9999
Use 88, 8888 for not currently known, in progress to obtain information.
Use 99, 9999 for not known.
If century is known, but year is unknown then give an estimate of year or code YYYY = 9999.
If MM = 99 then DD must = 99.
If century is known, but year is unknown then give an estimate of year or code YYYY = 9999.
If YYYY = 9999 then MM and DD must = 99.

The following special parameters are used:
YYYY 1700 (Minimum year) - system date year, 8888, 9999
MM 01 - 12, 88, 99
DD 01 - 31, 88, 99

10 DXEST number (1,0) Required:true
Accuracy of diagnosis date.
Allowable Values
1 Exact
2 Within 1 year
3 Within 1+ to 5 years
4 Within 5+ to 10 years
5 10 or more years
9 Unknown

11 DXSRC number (2,0) Required:true
Source of diagnosis information (site, histology, behavior, laterality).
Allowable Values
1 Pathology review (means your center's pathologist examined the tissue and may have also completed an internal review sheet;)
2 Pathology report (means the documents from the hospital's medical records or pathologist. It often comes with the Biospecimens (block, tissue...). )
3 Other hospital record or clinic record
4 Death certificate
5 Self
6 Relative
8 Other cancer registry (e.g. state)
9 Unknown
10 NDI, NDI+, site-specific state death indices (health department)
11 Spouse
12 Other source, for example specialized genealogy

12 TISSUE number (1,0) Required:true
Status of tissue procurement.

7 Unable to request tissue (tissue location overseas or location is unknown)
8 Pending permission from patient

13 QUALIFY_TUMOR number (1,0) Required:false
Flag indicating that the tumor qualifies a population sampled affected proband as eligible for inclusion in the study. The tumor must meet all site-specific eligibility criteria. Synchronous qualifying tumours should be sequentially ordered beginning with the largest in size.
Allowable Values
1 to 4 Range

Error Description
If FAMILY-MEMBERSHIP.PROBAND_FLG=1 And FAMILY.FSRC=1, then CANCER.QUALIFY_TUMOR must be 1 (at least one cancer record)
