Cancer in children is devastating. Diagnosis of cancer in a child is a catastrophic blow to the family members. However, pediatric oncologists in India have time and again restored faith and happiness in countless families by successfully treating their child and defeating the Big C. They offer evidence-based treatment options tailored specifically to the needs of each individual patient in order to ensure that the cancer is treated accurately and effectively while minimizing discomfort and side effects. In case you are looking for pediatric oncologists in India, here is a list of the best in the country.

What are the five most prevalent kinds of cancer in children?

The five most prevalent kinds of cancer in children are:

  • Leukemia: It refers to cancer of the blood and bone marrow
  • Brain and spinal cord tumors: Most brain tumours in children start in the lower parts of the brain, such as the brainstem or cerebellum.
  • Neuroblastoma: This type of cancer starts in early forms of nerve cells found in a developing embryo or fetus. It develops in infants and young children, and is rare in children older than the age of 10 years. 
  • Wilms’ Tumour: Also called nephroblastoma, it starts in one, or rarely, in both kidneys. The symptoms include a swelling or lump in the abdomen along with fever, pain, nausea, or poor appetite.
  • Lymphomas: This type of cancer starts in the immune system cells called lymphocytes. It often starts in the lymph nodes or in other lymph tissues, like the tonsils or thymus. The two main types of lymphoma are Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. 

Are childhood cancers inherited?

Some children inherit DNA changes (mutations) from a parent that increases the likelihood of certain types of cancer. These changes are present in every cell of the child’s body but only a few of these DNA changes are linked only with an increased risk of cancer. Other DNA mutations can cause other syndromes like health or developmental problems. 

Most types of cancer in children are not caused by inherited DNA changes. Cancer happens in children due to changes in the DNA in the early stage of life. When a cell divides into two new cells, it copies its DNA. At times, this process isn’t perfect, especially when the cells grow quickly. This kind of gene mutation can happen in a person at any point of time in life and is called an acquired mutation. Acquired mutations stay only in a person’s cancer cells and cannot be passed on to his/her children. 

Questions & Answers on "Pediatric Oncologist" (300)

I am suffering from severe stomach pain due to colon cancer stage 4, any medicine for pain relief

Male | 53

This pain occurs because the tumor is pressing on your belly inside. To relieve it, the doctor can prescribe you stronger drugs than those sold in the drugstore. These medicines are designed to ease the pain and make you comfortable. Keep telling your doctor how you feel so that they can change the medication when necessary to control the pain effectively.

Keeley Mums cancer has spread too far and has been deemed too aggressive for surgery. It started off in the breast and has spread to her brain, throat, lungs, liver and now also into her lymph nodes... She has been referred to oncology, who will look at her case and decide whether she is a fit for chemotherapy, and once they meet her they will decide if she is strong enough to go through it. IF mum is able to have the chemo, she will either be given a course of tablets to take, I believe they are one tablet a week. Or she will be given chemo via an IV and will have to go to once every three weeks for a few hours. If mum decides not to have chemo she will be referred to palliative care

Female | 67

If breast cancer advances to the brain, throat, lungs, liver, and lymph nodes, it is advanced cancer. Breast Cancer naturally develops in the cells of the human breast. But when cancer cells are balooned in size, it is called breast tumor. Chemotherapy treatment is regarded as one of the most popular therapies for advanced Breast Cancer. Chemotherapy can be done as an outpatient procedure if your mom can physically handle the treatment..

I am a 24 year old girl presenting all classic symptoms of hogdkins lymphoma, but im not sure what is the next step

Female | 24

I know it is hard to have symptoms that seem like­ Hodgkin's lymphoma. This kind of cancer can make the lymph node­s swell up. It can make you fee­l very tired too. You might lose we­ight without trying. You might get sweaty at night. The be­st thing to do is see a doctor who treats cance­r. The doctor might need to do a te­st called a biopsy to know for sure if you have Hodgkin's lymphoma. The­ biopsy can help the doctor plan the right tre­atment for you.
