How are children with cancer treated?

HCG Manavata Cancer Centre

In India, it is estimated that around 50,000 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer each year. Children usually require a multidisciplinary approach. We have our surgical oncology, haemato-oncology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, and psycho-oncology working together to treat and rehabilitate children who have cancer. Sometimes, not only the children but also their parents need psychological counseling. Hence, psycho-oncology plays a major role in treating pediatric cancer patients. We have a school and a play area for the children inside the hospital, the first of its kind in the state (Maharashtra), which allows the children on prolonged therapy to lead as normal a life as possible.

I want to go to the pram in the first place to our coordinator Katerina, who helped us with the vibe Хочу виразити подяку в першу чергу нашому координаторові Катерині, яка допомогла нам у виборі клініки та весь час підтримувала нас. Співробітнику Bookimed Олександру, який займався квитками та підтримував з нами зв'язок на протязі всієї дороги, тож в нас не виникло жодних труднощів дістатись до місця призначення, не зважаючи на 3 пересадки і на те, що ніхто з нас не володіє мовою.
Окрема подяку Юрію, що працює в клініці менеджером, який був нашим гідом, перекладачем, супроводжував нас на всіх етапах обстеження.
Завдяки злагодженій роботі цієї команди ми досить швидко пройшли обстеження і отримали відповіді на всі запитання стосовно лікування нашої дитини.

Verified review. The patient was treated of retinoblastoma in Anadolu Medical Center

A deep bow to all the doctors and staff of the clinic Anadolu. When my son turned one year old, the cancer of the right eye was diagnosed. Anadolu clinic was chosen according to reviews. Thank the doctors! cured and preserved the eyeball, 100% vision, and most importantly preserved life. In Turkey, advanced medicine, and the clinic Anadolu number 1 among all Turkish clinics on quality standards. Низкий поклон всем врачам и сотрудникам клиники Анадолу. Когда моему сыну исполнился только годик, поставили диагноз рак правого глаза. Выбрали клинику Анадолу по отзывам. Спасибо врачам! вылечили и сохранили глазное яблоко, зрение 100%, и самое главное сохранили жизнь. В Турции передовая медицина, а клиника Анадолу №1 среди всех турецких клиник по стандартам качества.

FAQ about Pediatric Oncology

Features of diagnostics in best pediatric cancer hospitals

Specialists prescribe diagnostic procedures depending on the type of suspected tumor. There are such procedures which are conducted in most of the cases:

  • methods of visualization (MRI, PET-CT, CT, Ultrasound, X-ray, etc.)
  • laboratory tests (urine and blood tests, examination for detecting specific tumor markers in blood)
  • a biopsy is taken to identify a nature and type of tumor
  • biopsy and lumbar puncture of a bone marrow shows whether it is affected by metastases
  • genetic tests show a mutation in tumor and detect its kind with up to 99% accuracy.

According to these examinations, specialists choose specific chemotherapy regimen.

The main feature of diagnostics cancer in children is to make these procedures painless and comfortable for little patients. In some cases, infants or 2-4 years children cannot stay calm, and diagnostics is difficult to be performed. So, in the pediatric oncology hospitals, doctors apply special safe sedation. It means that all procedures are made when a kid is in a light dream: a patient does not feel any discomfort and doctors can perform the diagnostic procedure with up to 99% accuracy.

Pediatric cancer: types and methods of treatment

Pediatric oncology unites such specific diseases:

  • Retinoblastoma is a malignant tumor of the retina (also called eye cancer). In most of the cases, an eye and visual functions are possible to be saved. Treatment options include chemotherapy, coagulation (destruction of a tumor with a laser), cryotherapy (freezing of malignant cells), enucleation (removal of an eye, applied very rare — in 5-6% of cases).
  • Neuroblastoma is cancer of sympathetic nervous system. It can appear in any part of a body, giving metastases to lymph nodes, healthy organs, and bone marrow. For treatment of neuroblastoma pediatric oncology physicians apply chemotherapy, immunotherapy (a safe and effective alternative to chemo), radiotherapy, surgery. But in some cases, self-recovery is observed — a tumor together with metastases suddenly disappear.
  • Nephroblastoma (Wilm's tumor) is a malignant tumor affecting one or both kidneys. The primary methods for treatment are chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgical removal of nephroblastoma.
  • Ewing’s sarcoma is a malignant tumor of bones. Most common treatment therapies are chemo, radio, proton therapies. Specialists apply a resection of cancer with the following prosthetics of an affected area, and amputation of an affected limb — in advanced cases only.
  • Rhabdomyosarcoma is a soft tissue tumor. Chemo-, radio-, targeted- and immunotherapies are applied in the children's cancer centers.

Tips for pediatric cancer treatment in centers beyond your country

  • When doctors establish a diagnosis, be sure that you entrust a child’s health to the best professionals. The deal is that in some countries and hospitals doctors prescribe inappropriate chemotherapy regimen. During such a wrong treatment a tumor does not disappear but adapts to the drugs. In this case, top pediatric cancer centers can refuse to accept a child for further treatment because a tumor becomes insensitive and the following therapy is ineffective.
  • If a little patient is in a serious condition, not every hospital is ready to accept such a patient. Do not give up and check all the variants.
  • Prepare the documents: passports, medical reports (preferably, in English) and be ready for a trip to another country.
  • Fill in the form on Bookimed. Doctor-Coordinator will help find the best pediatric oncology hospital for your particular case taking into account a diagnosis, condition of child’s health, financial ability. With Bookimed you can start treatment immediately without queues. Our services are free for a patient; you pay a bill at the clinic desk.
