1 - 10 of 18

Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL)

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common form of leukemia found in children, accounting for about 30 percent of all pediatric cancer.

Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML)

Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) is the second most common blood cancer in children, affecting about 500 children in the U.S. each year. AML starts in the young cells that form normal mature blood cells.

Chondrosarcoma

Chondrosarcoma is a malignant tumor that mimics the cartilage that coats the ends of bones where a joint is formed. It is extremely rare in children.

Differentiated Thyroid Cancer

Differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) includes papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) and follicular thyroid cancer (FTC). PTC is the most common form of thyroid cancer in both adults and children, representing about 85 to 90 percent of diagnoses. FTC accounts for only 5 to 10 percent of pediatric patients with differentiated thyroid cancer.

Ewing Sarcoma

Ewing sarcoma is a very rare form of bone cancer that strikes children, adolescents and young adults. It can cause pain, swelling and fractures.

Hepatoblastoma (liver cancer)

Hepatoblastoma is a rare tumor that originates in cells in the liver. It is the most common cancerous liver tumor in early childhood. Most hepatoblastoma tumors begin in the right lobe of the liver.

Hodgkin Lymphoma

Lymphomas, both non-Hodgkin and Hodgkin lymphoma, are the third most common cancer in children. Hodgkin lymphoma can occur at any time during life, but is found more often in adolescents than younger children.

Medullary Thyroid Cancer

Medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) is a form of thyroid cancer that originates from the parafollicular cells of the thyroid gland.

Neuroblastoma

Neuroblastoma is a tumor of nerve tissue found in infants and children. It usually begins in the abdomen in the tissues of the adrenal gland, but can occur in other areas.

Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is a cancer that starts in cells called lymphocytes, which are part of the body’s immune system. It occurs in children and adults.
