Brain Cancer Awareness

May is Brain Cancer Awareness Month and is an opportunity to rally support and awareness for the more than 700,000 people living with benign brain tumors or brain cancer in the United States1.

Facts and Stats

  • Around 94,000 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor this year.
  • Glioblastoma is the most commonly occurring primary malignant brain tumor, accounting for 14.2% of all tumors and 50.1% of all malignant tumors.
  • The chances of developing brain cancer are less than one percent.

Onco360 understands that brain cancer can significantly impact the daily life of patients and we are here to help. We offer expert and compassionate oncology care with many treatment options, expert clinical support, and financial assistance sourcing for eligible patients.

It is common for individuals battling brain tumors and brain cancer to experience cognitive issues such as difficulty concentrating, mental slowing, memory loss, problems understanding, or problems organizing thoughts.
