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:

  • Lymphomas.
  • Neuroblastoma.
  • Brain tumours.
  • Rhabdomyosarcoma.
  • Ewing’s sarcoma.
  • Osteosarcoma.
  • Wilms’ tumour (nephroblastoma).
  • Medulloblastoma.
  • Retinoblastoma.

  • Tumours of the nervous system.
  • Craniofacial anomalies.
