Abstract

Using population-based linked birth and cancer registry data, we investigated whether the risk of brain tumour in childhood (n=155) was associated with perinatal risk factors. This population-based cohort showed that being born into a larger family or to a mother with a history of miscarriage may increase childhood brain tumour risk.
