The numbers are hardly conclusive, but according to the National Cancer Institute part of the National Institute of Health, in the course of a year 160,000 to 180,000 Americans are diagnosed with some form of brain tumor. Of these patients around 30,000 of these are tumors that originate in the brain or primary brain tumors and are considered cancerous.
In about a third of those diagnosed the tumor can present a particularly aggressive nature making it difficult to eradicate, control, predict or even treat. These are figures reported by larger institutions and it is believed by many that the numbers are understated.
While specific data is also wide ranging, what is startling about these figures is that the survival rate for the most common of these tumors remains well below 50% and even the doctors who have devoted their careers and their lives to this disease still consider it incurable.
