The data was obtained from studies of children who survive childhood cancer. Types of nerve tumors are often found in children are gliomas and meningiomas, which are generally found in the brain and other parts.

About 1% of the total cancer patients aged children who are able to survive in the intervening years are known to be affected by tumors on the nervous system if they are exposed to radiation.
