Brain Tumour Research, which describes the condition as the “forgotten cancer”, called for action after publishing figures showing they were now the leading cause of cancer deaths among younger age groups but only £3m a year - 1% of cancer research spending - goes on brain tumours, meaning survival rates are low. Brain tumours are responsible for almost 3,300 deaths a year, or just over 2% of all cancer deaths.
