    16                         <strong>Cancer Concerns and Potential Cancer Clusters</strong>
    17                 </h3>
    18                         Most people know of someone who has been diagnosed with cancer. In fact, often in New Mexico more
    19                         people die from cancer than any other cause. There are many different types of cancer, which are
    20                         classified as numerous different diseases. A common concern people have is the existence of a
    21                         potential cancer cluster. The term "cancer cluster" is most often used to describe a greater than
    22                         expected number of cancers occurring within a group of people, in a geographic area, over a
    23                         specified period of time (CDC 2003). Most identified cancer excesses are not related to known
    24                         environmental causes, but instead appear to be due to personal risk factors, genetic causes,
    25                         normal random variation in cancer occurrence, or unknown factors.

     26                                The New Mexico Cancer Concerns Work Group responds to concerns from the public, health professionals,
     27                                or other concerned people, about cancers among a specified group of people, such as in a community or
     28                                a workplace. The process involves coordinated and standardized responses from the New Mexico
     29                                Department of Health and the New Mexico Tumor Registry. These responses are based on an exploration
     30                                of data available to the work group.
     31                                <br/><br/>
     32                                The Cancer Concerns Work Group includes epidemiologists and health promotion staff members from
     33                                complementary fields such as cancer, environmental health, occupational health, toxicology, and/or
     34                                occupational medicine. As a multi-agency collaborative, the Cancer Concerns Work Group is comprised
     35                                of New Mexico Department of Health staff from the Chronic Disease Prevention and Control Bureau's
     36                                Cancer Section, the Environmental Health Epidemiology Bureau, and Tribal Epidemiology staff from the
     37                                Community Health Assessment Program, as well as staff from the New Mexico Tumor Registry at
     38                                the University of New Mexico Cancer Center and Health Sciences Center. The Tumor Registry is part of
     39                                the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) Program.

     45                                                The New Mexico Cancer Concerns Work Group provides coordinated and standardized responses to an
     46                                                inquiry or concern based on an exploration of data available from the New Mexico Tumor Registry.
     47                                                This response typically entails a customized analysis to reveal current incidence rates,
     48                                                stratified by race/ethnicity (if relevant) and trend data if needed. When feasible, the Cancer
     49                                                Concerns Work Group provides educational information about the types of cancers diagnosed that
     50                                                may have occurred within the geographic area of concern (e.g., where the people diagnosed with
     51                                                cancer live). This serves to empower the inquirer by helping him/her gain an understanding of
     52                                                the risk factors (e.g., age, smoking) for the cancer(s) of concern and known common causes
     53                                                (e.g., radon exposure) of the cancer(s).

     57                                                Simply put, when a cancer concern is presented we look at:
     58                                                <br/><br/>
     59                                                Relevant New Mexico county cancer incidence rates to determine if there are any statistically significant differences.
     60                                                Next, if warranted, we will examine:
     61                                                <br/><br/>
     62                                                What is the geographic areaof concern (i.e., where did the cancer cases occur)?  How many people lived and/or worked in the area?
     63                                                What is the time frame of concern? When were the cancers diagnosed?
     64                                                <br/>
     65                                                Are the diagnoses within the time frame of concern the same type(s) of cancer(s)? Are the diagnoses rare cancers?
     66                                                Is the length of residency or employment in the area of concern consistent with the known latency of the cancer(s)? 
     67                                                Did the people diagnosed with cancer live or work in the place of concern during the time it takes for the cancer(s) to develop?
     68                                                Within the time frame and geographic area of concern, were there are key known risk factors present for the type(s) of cancer(s)
     69                                                diagnosed (such as lifestyle, genetic, or exposure to occupational and/or environmental carcinogens)?

     76                                                        Having many cancer diagnoses in one community may be causing you some concern.

     79                                                        Things to consider as you explore this concern:
     80                                                        <br/><br/>
     81                                                        Are the diagnoses in the population of concern the same type of cancer?
     82                                                        <br/>
     83                                                        What are the common lifestyles and habits of those diagnosed with the same type of cancer?
     84                                                        <br/>
     85                                                        When submitting an inquiry to the CCWG it is helpful if you provide the following:
     86                                                        <br/><br/>
     87                                                        <ul class="Indent">
     88                                                                <li>The specific geographic area of concern (e.g., county)</li>
     89                                                                <li>The type(s) of cancers diagnosed in the geographic area</li>
     90                                                                <li>The time frame of the cancer(s) diagnoses</li>

     96                                                        The capacity of the Cancer Concerns Work Group is limited to examining the available cancer data from the New Mexico Tumor
     97                                                        Registry. By providing information resulting from an initial examination, the work group is able to empower the inquirer
     98                                                        to look for clues in a more strategic manner (such as exploring personal risk factors), and encourage the inquirer and
     99                                                        community of concern to pursue suitable preventive measures for specific cancers.
     100                                                        It is important to note that the Cancer Concerns Work Group realizes that it is possible that a cancer concern inquiry
     101                                                        may result in the identification of a true cancer cluster. However, finding a clear environmental cause is difficult. Most
     102                                                        identified cancer excesses are not related to known environmental causes, but instead appear to be due to personal risk factors,
     103                                                        genetic causes, normal random variation in cancer occurrence, or unknown factors.

    92                         <strong>Are You Considering Submitting an Inquiry to the CCWG?</strong>
    93                 </h3>
    94                         Having many cancer diagnoses in one community may be causing you some concern.
    95                         To learn more about inquiry submissions, please call 1-800-303-4503.

    97                         <br/>
    98                         <strong>Things to consider</strong> as you explore this concern:
    99                         <br/>
    100                         Are the diagnoses in the population of concern the same type of cancer?
    101                         <br/>
    102                         What are the common lifestyles and habits of those diagnosed with the same type of cancer?
    103                         <br/>
    104                         <strong>When submitting an inquiry</strong> to the CCWG it is helpful if you provide the following:
    105                        
    106                 <ul>
    107                         <li>The specific geographic area of concern (e.g., county)</li>
    108                         <li>The type(s) of cancers diagnosed in the geographic area</li>
    109                         <li>The time frame of the cancer(s) diagnoses</li>
    110                         <li>Family history of specific cancers within the geographic area's population</li>
    111                         <li>Lifestyle information such as health habits and     occupations of the population</li>
    112                         <li>Specific carcinogen of concern</li>
    113                 </ul>
    114                
    115                         The capacity of the Cancer Concerns Work Group is limited to examining the available cancer data from the New Mexico Tumor
    116                         Registry. By providing information resulting from an initial examination, the work group is able to empower the inquirer
    117                         to look for clues in a more strategic manner (such as exploring personal risk factors),and encourage the inquirer and
    118                         community of concern to pursue suitable preventive measures for specific cancers.
    119                         <br/>It is important to note that the Cancer Concerns Work Group realizes that it is possible that a cancer concern inquiry
    120                         may result in the identification of a true cancer cluster. However, finding a clear environmental cause is difficult. Most
    121                         identified cancer excesses are not related to known environmental causes, but instead appear to be due to personal risk factors,
    122                         genetic causes, normal random variation in cancer occurrence, or unknown factors.
