Primary brain and central nervous system (CNS) tumours (ICD-10 codes C70-C72) are a group of primary tumours arising in the brain, meninges or central nervous system. As such, this is a cluster of conditions rather than one disease per se. There are considered to be over 120 types of brain tumour including glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), meningiomas and astrocytomas.
This report provides the current incident population for Brain & CNS Cancer across 19 Major Markets (USA, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Turkey, Russia, India, Canada, Australia, Japan, China, South Korea, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa and Saudi Arabia) split by gender and 5-year age cohort. Along with the current incidence, the report also contains a disease overview of the risk factors, disease diagnosis and prognosis along with specific variations by geography and ethnicity.
Providing a value-added level of insight from the analysis team, several of the main symptoms and co-morbidities of Brain & CNS Cancer have been quantified and presented alongside the overall incidence figures. These sub-populations within the main disease are also included at a country level across the 10-year forecast snapshot.
