</strong>: Brain tumor is basically characterized by the abnormal or
uncontrolled growth of cells in the brain. The brain tumors occur in

Brain Tumor Survival Rate</p>
<p>The brain tumor survival rates depend on various factors, such as the
location of the brain tumor, the size and type of the brain tumor, stage
of the brain tumor and whether the patient is suffering from any other
ailment. The brain tumor survival rates are around eighty percent for
those suffering from oligodendroglioma brain tumor.</p>
<p>Brain cancer remains one of the most incurable forms of cancer, with
an average survival period of one to two years.</p>
<p>Factors Affecting Survival<br> Several factors can influence the five-
year survival rate of cancer patients. These include the size of the
tumor, its location in the brain, the type and severity of the cancer,
the stage of the cancer and the overall health of the patient.</p>
<p>How Survival Rates are Calculated<br> Survival statistics are based on
large numbers of people, and should not be used to predict the survival
of an individual patient.</p>
<p>Five-Year Survival Rate Examples<br> The North American Brain Tumor
Coalition also indicates a survival rate of 35 percent, while stating
that this percentage has changed little in several decades.</p>
<p>Age and Survival<br> A patient's age has much to do with how long he
will survive with brain cancer, as the odds decrease with age. According
to, children to the age of 14 have a 73 percent chance of
surviving five years, while the rate drops to 55 percent for young adults
between 15 and 44. Middle-aged patients between 45 and 64 have a 16
percent survival rate, and the elderly have a survival rate of only 5
<p>Other Facts</p>
<p>Despite the gloomy statistics, it has been shown that a combination of
radiation treatment and chemotherapy can lengthen the life of brain
cancer survivors, and in some cases, even improve the quality of life,
while patients who forgo treatment do not live as long.</p>
<p>The <em>Brain Cancer Survival Rate</em> presented here are based on
the relative survival rate. The overall 5-year relative brain cancer
survival rate for 1995-2001 was 33.3 percent.<br> The 5-year relative
survival rates for brain cancer by race and sex were as follows:</p>
<p>•   32.1 percent for Caucasian men<br> •   33.5 percent
for Caucasian women<br> •   37.7 percent for African-American
men<br> •   37.5 percent for African-American women.</p>
