Types of children’s cancers
The types of cancers that affect children tend to be different to the cancers that affect adults. Because cancer in children is relatively rare, community awareness of children’s cancer isn’t as high as that of adult cancer. However, many parents find that understanding more about the cancer their child has helps them feel more in control and better equipped to manage the emotional journey that is childhood cancer.
In this section, you’ll find information about the most common types of children’s cancers, including symptoms, risk factors, diagnosis, treatment, support and clinical trials.
