Pediatric Oncology

CHILD CANCER.


In recent years, there have been very important advances in the treatment of childhood cancer, to the point that in few specialties the therapeutic results observed during the last two decades can be compared with those of pediatric oncology.

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in children over the age of one, second only to accidents. The annual incidence for all malignant tumors is 12.45% per 100,000 children under the age of 15.


PEDIATRIC CANCER IS NOT PREVENTABLE, BUT IT CAN BE DETECTED TIMELY.


When a child is examined and symptoms or signs that are unclear and may be associated with malignancy are identified, cancer should be suspected and acted upon to prevent late diagnosis.
