Prevalence of Brain Tumors

The numbers are startling. Over the next year, more than 200,000 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor, and the toll is high. Brain tumors are the leading cause of solid tumor cancer deaths in children and the second leading cause of cancer deaths in people during their twenties. One of the most difficult things about brain tumors is that they can dramatically affect the lifestyle of people saddled with them. That’s because tumors can press upon parts of the brain that control everything from our emotions to our ability to walk and talk. Unfortunately, the cure rate for brain tumors is lower than other types.

We always appreciate your comments.
