Developmental cancer, also known as childhood cancer, is due to abnormal uncontrolled cell growth in a child’s normal growth process. It is a rare and complex disease that is very different from adult cancer, requiring different care and treatment. It is consequently essential for children with this problem to receive care from a specialized paediatric team.
The most common types of childhood cancers are:
- Brain tumours.
- Ewing’s sarcoma.
- Wilms’ tumour (nephroblastoma).
The team of neurosurgeons treats children with neurological or cranial disorders requiring surgical treatment.
- Tumours of the nervous system.
- Craniofacial anomalies.
- Hydrocephalus and cerebrospinal fluid disorders.
- Spinal anomalies.
