Your team of doctors, called a multidisciplinary team (MDT), will care for and treat your child, and will ensure that all your child’s needs are considered while they have cancer treatment.
Treatment for leukaemia depends on:
- the age of your child
- how well it responds to the initial treatment
- whether it has spread into the fluid around the brain and spinal cord
- other factors.
Your doctor will suggest treatments based on your child’s situation. Treatment may involve one or more of the following:
- radiation therapy
- targeted therapy
- stem cell transplant
- other treatments.
The section called The treatment team has further information about this.
