Statistics of Meningioma

A primary brain tumor starts in the brain. Meningioma accounts for 38% of the primary brain tumors in the United States. This year, the doctors will be diagnosing an estimated 34,840 people with a meningioma. Meningioma incidence rates rise with age, with a significant increase in diagnostic rates in people who are 65 and beyond. The average age of diagnosis is 66 years old. This condition rarely affects children. 

In all the groups, Meningioma incidence overall has increased through 2010, then has stabilized. Secular declines were statistically significant overall and in most groups. JoinPoint analysis of cohort rate-ratios identified substantial acceleration in White men born after 1963 (from 1.1% to 3.2% per birth year); cohort rate-ratios were stable or increasing in all groups and all birth cohorts. We forecast that meningioma incidence through 2027 will remain stable or decrease among groups aged 55-84 years but remain similar to current levels among groups aged 35-54 years. The expected case count of the total meningioma burden in 2027 is approximately 30,470. This is identical to the desired case count of 27,830 in 2018.

Between 2004 and 2017, the overall incidence of benign meningioma increased and then stabilized or declined. For 2018-2027, our forecast is incidence will remain generally stable in younger age groups but decrease in older age groups. Nonetheless, the total future burden will remain similar to current levels because the population is ageing.

Meningioma diagnosis in women is at a higher rate than Men. Black men and women are far more likely to contract the disease than white men and women. 

The Majority of meningioma are benign. Meningiomas that are malignant or cancerous account for a little more than 1% of all brain tumors. 

The 5-year survival rate indicates the percentage of patients who live for at least half a decade after the tumor is discovered. The percentage indicates or signifies how many out of 100. Malignant meningioma has a 5-year survival rate of more than 66 per cent. Malignant meningioma has a 10-year survival rate of more than 59 per cent. Meningioma survival rates are affected by a person’s age and if the tumor is malignant, among other things. Malignant meningioma has a 5-year survival rate of more than 77 per cent in children aged 0 to 14 and about 81 per cent in people aged 15 to 39. It is 65% among adults of 40 and up. 

Non-cancerous meningioma has a 5-year survival rate of more than 95 per cent for children aged 14 and under, 97 per cent for people aged 15 to 39, and more than 87 per cent for adults aged 40 and beyond.

It is vital to realize that meningioma survival rates are only estimated. The estimate is based on the annual data on meningioma patients in the United States of America. In addition to this, research scientists examine the survival rates during five years. As a result, the estimate may not reflect the results of improved diagnosis or therapy that is accessible in fewer than five years.
