Publication: Primary brain and CNS tumours in adults in Belgium, 2004-2020

The Belgian Cancer Registry (BCR) is pleased to announce its new publication: “Primary brain and other central nervous system (CNS) tumours in adults in Belgium 2004-2020”. Epidemiological data on incidence, prevalence, survival, trends, and projections are presented in this report.

The report (attached) is also freely downloadable from https://kankerregister.org/media/docs/publications/rapporten/NeuroOnco_Epidemio_Fullversion.pdf and is the first nationwide publication of our Registry focusing on primary brain and other CNS tumours.

All chapters of the publication are divided by primary location of the tumour (meninges, brain, spinal cord, cranial nerves, pituitary, and pineal glands and craniopharyngeal duct) and provide results based on sex, age group, histological subtype and behaviour of the tumour. Please find a summary below.

The BCR welcomes questions from the registry community (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and would appreciate if you could forward this news to interested colleagues.
