YoTrip Presents: September Is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month


 

 

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

 

Childhood Cancers

 

Key Points

 

  1. What are the most common types of childhood cancer?Among the 12 major types of childhood cancers, leukemias (blood cell cancers) and cancers of the brain and central nervous system account for more than half of the new cases. About one-third of childhood cancers are leukemias. The most common type of leukemia in children is acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The most common solid tumors are brain tumors (e.g., gliomas andmedulloblastomas), with other solid tumors (e.g., neuroblastomas, Wilms tumors, and sarcomassuch as rhabdomyosarcoma and osteosarcoma) being less common. 
  2. How many children are diagnosed with cancer in the United States annually?In the United States in 2007, approximately 10,400 children under age 15 were diagnosed with cancer and about 1,545 children will die from the disease (1). Although this makes cancer the leading cause of death by disease among U.S. children 1 to 14 years of age, cancer is still relatively rare in this age group. On average, 1 to 2 children develop the disease each year for every 10,000 children in the United States (2).
