ISLAMABAD: World Brain Tumor Day will be observed tomorrow on 8th June across the world including Pakistan with the aim to disperse awareness to public regarding this unknown disease.
The day was initiated in 2000 by the German Brain Tumor Association whose members come from 14 different nations and lobby together for the interests of brain tumor patients.
German Brain Tumor Association announced the World Brain Tumor Day in 2000 as an international commemoration day to stimulate global awareness about brain tumor.
A report released by the World Health Organization and its affiliated International Agency for Research on Canceré said a panel of international experts found "limited" evidence that radio-frequency energy from wireless phones could increase the risk for glioma and acoustic neuroma.
The latter is a usually benign tumor on nerves near the inner ear. A brain tumor is an abnormal mass of tissue in which some cells grow and multiply uncontrollably.
