Description:
Cancers of the brain and other central nervous system (CNS) sites (including benign intracranial and intraspinal tumours) have made up a fairly constant 1.2% of all cancers since 1994. Brain tumours are initially diagnosed by brain scan. Most are then biopsied or removed, so the diagnosis can be confirmed by histology (histological verification; HV). Between 1994 and 2008, 72% of CNS cancers (100% of benign) were diagnosed by histology, 24% by radiology/scan and the remaining 4% clinically. 97% of tumours were invasive and 3% benign; this proportion has been constant since 1994. Although numbers of cases increased by an annual average of 2.3% since 1994, due to population increases and ageing, the age-standardised incidence rate has not changed
