    • ...Brain tumors account for 1.7% of all new cancers [1] and similar rates have been reported from European and non-European populations [2, 3]. They represent a relatively uncommon group of neoplasms in terms of incidence, although they constitute a frequent form of cancer death, representing about 3.5% of the total cancer death rate [4]...
    • ...true increase in incidence, caused by an unidentified risk factor, or whether it reflects improved diagnostic techniques [4, 7, 17]...
    • ...Incidence rates for brain and CNS cancer have increased in the Nordic countries in the last few decades, ranging from 10–12 per 100,000 among men and between 11 and 13 per 100,000 among women [4]...
    • ...Recently, a decrease in brain tumor incidence has been reported in some countries [4]...
    • ...The incidence decrease recently observed in Sweden has been attributed to a reduced autopsy intensity among the elderly, an underreporting, or an age-specific differential in the use of new imaging techniques [4]...
    • ...Incidence is influenced by registration practice, by the greater diagnostic specificity with a consequent shift in registered categories, and by the underreporting of tumors, particularly for unbiopsied neoplasms [1, 4]. Moreover, interpretation of the temporal variations of brain tumors is problematic because the group of brain tumors comprises different histological subtypes with varying prognoses...
