Kids and Cancer

Did you know…

“The cancers that develop in children are often different from the types that develop in adults. Childhood cancers are often the result of DNA changes in cells that take place very early in life, sometimes even before birth. Unlike many cancers in adults, childhood cancers are not strongly linked to lifestyle or environmental risk factors.

With some exceptions, childhood cancers tend to respond better to certain treatments, such as chemotherapy (also called chemo). Children’s bodies also tend to handle chemotherapy better than adults’ bodies do. On the other hand, children (especially very young children) are more likely to be affected by radiation therapy if it is needed as part of treatment. Both chemo and radiation therapy can also cause long-term side effects, so children who have had cancer need careful follow-up for the rest of their lives.”   -American Cancer Society
