What cancer types are considered “rare” by HCMI, and hence, use the “Rare Cancer Case Report Forms (CRFs)”?

Answer: 

The cancer types that are not highly represented in the HCMI models are considered “rare” by HCMI, however, they may not be considered “rare” based on their representation among cancer incidence rates. The “Rare Cancer CRFs” are being used to capture clinical data for these cancer types: Bladder Cancer, Chordoma, Epithelioid Sarcoma, Extrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma, Gallbladder Cancer, Spindle Cell Sarcoma, Small Intestine Cancer, and Thyroid Cancer.
