Cancer is rare in children, but can happen. Cancers in the children require special expertise and infrastructure to treat. The doctors and other health professionals at our centre have special training and expertise to give complete care to these children. We have a dedicated Pediatric Oncology ward with play area for treating pediatric cancers.
Most common cancers in children are Blood cancers ( leukemias – ALL/ AML), Brain tumors, Lymphomas and various others ( liver , kidney cancers, sarcomas etc).
The main goal when treating kids with cancer is to cure them. This takes priority over everything else even if it means unwanted side effects as a result of treatment. Presently there are many medicines and therapies that can make kids more comfortable while undergoing treatment for cancer.
