Pediatric Neuro-Oncology

Neuro-oncology is the study of brain and spinal cord neoplasms, many of which are at least eventually very dangerous and life-threatening. Cancers of children are quite different from their adult versions. They appear in different locations and behave differently than the cancers of adults. Among children under the age of 15, even though rare, brain tumors are the most common form of solid tumors and they represent about 20% of all childhood cancers. Treatment options vary and can be strongly influenced by the age of the child. According to statistics, most pediatric brain and spine tumors are primary tumors. That is they are originated in the brain or spine. Primary tumors are classified as “benign” or “malignant” and both can be life-threatening.
