Up to date brain tumour statistics
Statistics influence many of the decisions you might make about your care and also help you understand the bigger picture, or landscape, in which you find yourself.
Statistics influence the focus, and work of organisations like brainstrust, helping us understand the scale and impact of the problems we are setting out to solve.
This tool is aimed to help you understand the landscape in which you find yourself having been diagnosed with a brain tumour. Using the menus and sliders on the left of your screen, you can compare brain tumour incidence, malignancy and survival by age, gender and region. The statistics you see represent the most up to date population level data available for England and Wales. Over time we will be adding to the data available and publishing reports, with recommendations, as a result of what we learn from this data.
The data behind this content has come from Public Health England’s National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service (NCRAS) and is a direct result of the ‘Get Data Out’ project.
This project provides anonymised population level brain tumour data for public use in the form of standard output tables, accessible here: http://cancerdata.nhs.uk/standardoutput
