It was estimated that there would be 23 820 new cases of central nervous system tumors in the US in 2019, along with 17 760 deaths. In our previous work, we found that compared with the general population, suicide rates within the first year of cancer diagnosis are significantly higher, particularly in cancers with poor prognosis. This new work aims to investigate the increase in suicide rate associated with diagnosis with brain cancer.
