Pediatric cancers are cancers that develop in kids and adolescents ages 0-19. Pediatric cancers usually develop in three ways: through inherited gene mutations, parental exposure to toxins, and acquired gene mutations. While cancer can affect children and adults alike, treatment becomes more difficult for children due to their physical predevelopment stages. Therefore, it is important to discuss all methods of treatment when dealing with a particular pediatric cancer in order to choose the most effective method.
