One of the first steps to control cancer is to collect data in the framework of cancer registries as well as conducting research in various cancer related areas, which could be achieved through establishment of cancer research network in Iran. The other important issue is not follow the early detection and prevention protocols and along treatment procedures. Considering the fact that cancer is the third leading cause of death in Iran, it is required that health system should try to meet the demands related to the diagnosis, treatment and palliative care of cancer patients.
