Cancer is the second most common cause of death in children, and approximately 3,000 children are diagnosed with cancer every year in our country. One out of every two children diagnosed with childhood cancers dies due to lack of treatment or late diagnosis. With early diagnosis and correct treatment, the majority of children with cancer can fully recover.
The most important way to achieve success in childhood cancers is to treat these patients in full-fledged centers with infrastructure and service quality. For the diagnosis and treatment of all childhood cancers, pediatric oncologists, pediatric surgeons, orthopedics, neurosurgery, eye, ear-nose-throat departments, especially doctors specializing in tumor and tumor surgery, cooperate.
Multidisciplinary Approach To The Treatment of All Pediatric Cancer Types
The most common types of cancer in children are respectively; leukemia, brain tumor, lymphoma, kidney and adrenal gland tumor, soft tissue and bone tumors, some organ tumors and retinoblastoma, ie eye tumors. While awareness of leukemias is higher in the society, it is lower in solid tumors and lymphomas, which constitute 75% of all childhood tumors. Childhood cancers can be more difficult to treat and early diagnosis is vital.
