Pediatric Oncology

Pediatric Oncology

Cancer in childhood is uncommon. Children are not adults; their needs are different and need to be treated by someone who is trained to look after them. Pediatric oncology is a medical specialty focused on the care of children with cancer. There are many types of cancer treatment. The types of treatment that a child with cancer receives will depend on the type of cancer and how advanced it is. Common treatments include: surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, and stem cell transplant
