International Childhood Cancer Day

Today is #InternationalChildhoodCancerDay – a global collaborative campaign to raise awareness about #ChildhoodCancer, understand challenges faced by children, adolescents, survivors and their families, and spotlight the need for more equitable access to treatment and care.

Childhood/Paediatric cancers are general terms used to describe a range of cancer and non-cancerous tumours found in children. Below are some of the most common types found in children under age 15.#InternationalChildhoodCancerDay

Here are the most common childhood tumours and their possible associated symptoms.

When #childhoodcancers are identified early, the likelihood of response to treatment, less intensive treatment, lower expenses, and survival rates are higher. Significant improvements can be made by detecting cancer early and avoiding delays in care. #InternationalChildhoodCancerDay
