Metastatic Cancer

When cancer develops elsewhere in the body and spreads (metastasizes) to the brain, which is called as secondary brain tumor, or metastatic brain cancer. Brain metastases (secondary brain tumors) occur in approximately 15% of cancer patients as a result of haematogenous dissemination of cancer, and the incidence may be rising because of better control of systemic disease. 

The overall annual incidence of primary brain tumors in the United States is 9.5 cases per 100,000 population. Over 60% of primary brain tumors are gliomas, and at least two-thirds of these are clinically aggressive and high grade. Brain tumors represent 20% of all childhood malignancies and are the number two cause of cancer death in children after leukaemia
