How would you query pubmed to obtain any MeSH terms currently having rapid growth in publication count?

I would like to be able to know what research topics are currently showing a lot of activity in terms of publications being deposited into pubmed. I have only been able to find existing web applications that require a specific search term as input.

Are there any server interfaces out there that I can use to connect to pubmed and then ask a SQL query that returns entry counts for distinct MeSH terms over defined periods? Or would I need to download a recent period of pubmed entries locally?

I am completely new to bioinformatics and the easier the solution the better! All and any suggestions and advice appreciated.
