General | Latest Info

Cancer is a group related disease. In all types of cancer, some of the body's cells begin to divide without stopping and spread into surrounding tissues. Normally, new cells form as you need them, replacing old cells that die. Sometimes, this process goes wrong. New cells form when you don't need them, and old cells don't die when they should. Extra cells can form tumor. Tumors can be benign or malignant. Benign tumors aren't cancer while malignant ones are. Cells from malignant tumors can invade nearby tissues. They can also break away and spread to other parts of the body. Children can get cancer in the same parts of the body as adults, but there are differences. Childhood cancers can occur suddenly, without early symptoms, and have a high rate of cure. The most common children's cancer is leukemia. Other cancers that affect children include brain tumors, lymphoma, and soft tissue sarcoma. Symptoms and treatment depend on the cancer type and how advanced it is. Treatments include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, stem cell transplants, and / or target therapy. Target therapy uses drugs or other substances that attack specific cancer cells with less harm to normal cells.

Types of Cancer in Children

In the United States in 2020, estimated 11 050 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed among children from birth to 14 years, and about 1 190 children are expected to die from the disease. Although cancer death rates for this age group have declined by 65 percent from 1970 to 2016, cancer remains the leading cause of death from disease among children. The most common types of cancer diagnosed in children ages 0 to 14 years are Leukemias, Brain and other central nervous system Tumors, and Lymphomas.

Causes of Childhood Cancer

The causes of most childhood cancers are not know. About 5 percent of ALL cancers in children are caused by inherited mutation. Most cancers in children, like those in adults, are thought to develop as result of mutations in genes that lead to uncontrolled cell growth and eventually cancer. In adults, these gene mutations reflect cumulative effects of aging and long - term exposure to cancer - causing substances. However, identifying potential environmental causes of Childhood Cancer has been difficult, partly because cancer in children is rare and partly because it is difficult to determine what children might have been exposed to early in their development. More information about possible causes of Cancer in Children is available in the fact sheet, Cancer in Children and Adolescents.
