Brain Tumor Statistics

It's important to note that these statistics are only a general guide and may not reflect the experience of individual patients. If you have been diagnosed with a brain tumor, it's important to speak with your doctor about your specific prognosis and treatment options.
About 80,000 new cases of primary brain tumors (tumors that originate in the brain) are diagnosed in the United States each year.
Brain tumors account for about 1.4% of all cancers in the United States.
Approximately 36% of primary brain tumors are malignant (cancerous).
The most common types of primary brain tumors are gliomas, meningiomas, and pituitary adenomas.
The incidence of brain tumors is slightly higher in men than in women.
The incidence of brain tumors increases with age, with the highest rates occurring in people over the age of 65.
The 5-year relative survival rate for all primary brain tumors is around 36%. However, survival rates vary widely depending on the type and stage of the tumor, as well as the age and overall health of the patient.
Glioblastoma, the most common and aggressive type of primary brain tumor, has a particularly poor prognosis, with an average survival time of less than two years.
