Signs of Childhood Cancer

 

Childhood cancer is still considered a rare a childhood disease.

Advances in survival of childhood cancer over the past three decades have been promising. Today approximately 75 percent of childhood cancers are potentially curable. This is achievable by the combination of three important therapeutic modalities: chemotherapy, surgery, and radiotherapy - and by aggressive clinical trials comparing the best known therapy with new treatment innovations. These trials have been conducted by multidisciplinary teams working together. The combined and shared expertise greatly improves the chance and quality of survival.

But the bottom line that all experts agree upon is that timely and proper diagnosis of Ewing’s sarcoma is crucial to the success of the childhood cancer treatment by further increasing an optimal outcome.

The chance of Edwin’s sarcoma recovery and choice of treatment depends on the location, size, and stage of the cancer or how far the childhood cancer has spread, how the sarcoma cancer cells react to the treatment, and the child’s age and general health.

Except for hematological (blood-related) cancers and brain tumors, the principal childhood cancers are seldom seen in adults. In children, deep-seated sarcomas and embryonic tumors are the rule. Many of the well-known classic warning signs of adult cancer apply to carcinomas that are extremely rare in children. Pediatric tumors do not involve epithelial tissues so they do not bleed externally or exfoliate cells. Screening techniques useful in adults, such as stool blood tests or Pap smears, have no counterparts in children.

Childhood cancer theories: How do children differ from adults in getting cancer?

Children grow very rapidly; therefore they are continually producing new cells, leading to growth, and also heal faster of any damage.

Children have stronger immune systems; a child is usually stronger and healthier in all respects, including immunity.

Children have fewer years on the planet so they have less exposure to toxins, bacteria, and viruses.

Children have less raging hormones; pre-puberty children do not have active sex hormones fluctuating throughout the body.

All of this circumstantial childhood cancer evidence can be interpreted various ways. Perhaps the childhood cancers are more pure, arising naturally from internal DNA errors, without any environmental triggers. Children have not been subject to years of environmental radiation and toxins. Children don’t have hormonal fluctuations, which are more direct triggers than rare DNA duplication errors. Hence, their skin and other surface cells do not have enough damage to cause cancers.

Perhaps children's DNA repair mechanisms are better except for these particular cell types. An alternative medicine theory might propose that children are less stressed and happier, and only get cancers that are non-stress-related.
