What is Pediatric Oncology?

Paediatric Oncology is a specialised branch of Paediatrics that deals with the diagnosis, treatment and management of cancer in infants and children.

Cancer is a potentially life-threatening condition marked by the overgrowth of abnormal cells in the body. It starts with certain genetic mutations in a single cell, which can be triggered by a variety of different factors.

In children, however, these factors are not known in the majority of the cases. Lifestyle and environmental factors rarely play a role in this.
