World Brain Tumor Day is observed on 8th June, every year. German Brain Tumour Association (Deutsche Hirntumorhilfe e.V.), a nonprofit organisation, first marked this day in the year 2000 to spread the awareness about the brain tumour among the general public.

It is important that more and more people know about the symptoms, treatment and facts about the disease. In India, the cases of central nervous system (CNS) tumours is evident in 5 to 10 per 100,000 population.
