CBTRUS and our sponsor the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation are pleased to announce our new comprehensive statistical report on childhood and adolescent brain tumors ages 0-19 years has been published.
The CBTRUS Statistical Report: Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation Childhood and Adolescent Primary Brain and Other Central Nervous System Tumors Diagnosed in the United States in 2014–2018 comprehensively describes the current population-based incidence of primary malignant and non-malignant brain and other CNS tumors in children and adolescents ages 0–19 years, collected and reported by central cancer registries covering approximately 100% of the United States population. Overall, brain and other CNS tumors are the most common solid tumor, the most common cancer, and the most common cause of cancer death in children and adolescents ages 0–19 years. This report aims to serve as a useful resource for researchers, clinicians, patients, and families.
The report is available to view and download at the website of our publisher, Oxford Press. It is also easily accessible on our website via the CBTRUS Reports page.
