Estimated new central nervous system cancer cases in 2009

The American Cancer Society's recently published Cancer Facts and Figures 2009 reports that there will be 22,070 new brain and other nervous system cancers in the United States this year. That's 260 more cases than estimated for last year.

How much new Neurosarcoidosis is expected? Would love to see you discuss Neurosarcoid.

To "anonymous": I've seen a couple of neurosarcoidosis cases at autopsy in the last five years. I will discuss neurosarcoid in a future post. Thanks for the suggestion.
