Childhood cancer news
Treatment aims to cure the cancer in many cases. With modern therapies, many cancers can be cured.
The aim of the tests are to be sure that the correct cancer is diagnosed and to find out exactly where the tumour is and whether it has spread to other parts of the body.
Cancer treatments cause different reactions in different children and reactions can vary from treatment to treatment.
