Paediatric Cancers

The types of cancers that occur most often in children are different from those seen in adults. Leukaemia is a cancer of the blood cells. Chronic leukaemias are rare in childhood. Childhood brain tumors are abnormal growths inside the skull of children. Even benign tumors can be serious. Neuroblastoma is the most common extracranial solid tumor of infancy. Wilms tumor (also called nephroblastoma) is a cancerous tumor in the cells of the kidney. Secondary non-Hodgkin lymphoma is less common among pediatric patients. Rhabdomyosarcoma is cancer of soft tissue (such as muscle), connective tissue (such as tendon or cartilage), or bone. Retinoblastoma is an eye cancer that begins in the retina — the sensitive lining on the inside of your eye. Osteosarcoma and Ewing's sarcoma are the most common malignancies of bone tissues in children. Being pregnant may delay a cancer diagnosis. This is because some cancer symptoms, such as bloating, headaches, breast changes, or rectal bleeding, are also common during pregnancy.
