2023 CBTRUS Report Available
The Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States (CBTRUS) announces the publication by Oxford University Press of its latest report, CBTRUS Statistical Report: Primary Brain and Other Central Nervous System (CNS) Tumors Diagnosed in the United States in 2016-2020. The Report is a Supplement to the Society for Neuro-Oncology's journal, Neuro-Oncology, and is available online at www.cbtrus.org through a Free-to-View web link by clicking on Reports and Tables. Data collected by the CDC's National Program of Cancer Registries and NCI's Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results program were analyzed resulting in an incidence rate of 24.83 cases per 100,000 [6.94 per 100,000 for malignant tumors (126,729 cases) and 17.88 per 100,000 for non-malignant tumors (326,894)] for all primary brain and other central nervous system tumors in 2016-2020. The overall prevalence as of December 31, 2019 for all primary brain and other CNS tumors was estimated to be 1,323,121 cases, of which 14.6% were malignant (195,048 cases). The efforts of hospital tumor registrars, central cancer registries, and staff from NPCR and SEER to collect accurate and complete data have contributed to making this report possible.
