While cancer is the leading cause of death by disease among U.S. children ages 1 to 14, it is still relatively rare in this age group. Among the 12 major types of childhood cancers, leukemia, lymphoma, and cancers of the brain and central nervous system are most common.
Shaw Regional Cancer Center does not treat childhood cancer, but our physicians and staff can refer patients to some of the best pediatric cancer doctors in the country. For a consultation, call us at (970) 569-7429.
