At the moment, children with cancer are being diagnosed later than ever. They are often attending hospitals when they are much more poorly, not because of Covid-19, but because of complications of their cancer.
It is vital that parents get their children checked when they are concerned, even during this period of uncertainty. If you are worried about your child, please get them checked. Knowing the signs and symptoms of childhood cancer could help save the life of a child you know.
Please refresh your knowledge with this video wich explores the signs and symptoms of childhood cancer and how it may present.
Research has shown that early diagnosis can result in better outcomes for children with cancer. Currently, on average, they are diagnosed at a later stage than adults and we are working to help change this. Earlier diagnosis can help save lives.
Helping teach parents and carers the signs to look for.
