Pediatric oncology

Pediatric oncology is a specialized field of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and comprehensive care of children and adolescents with cancer. It addresses the unique challenges associated with childhood cancers, which differ from those seen in adult patients. Pediatric oncology encompasses a range of malignancies, including leukemia, brain tumors, neuroblastoma, Wilms tumor, lymphomas, sarcomas, and other rare childhood cancers.

Childhood cancer is a devastating diagnosis that affects not only young patients but also their families and communities. The field of pediatric oncology is dedicated to providing the highest level of medical care, emotional support, and long-term follow-up for children with cancer and their families.
