Pediatric Oncology Nursing

It can be frightening to hear that a child has cancer or a blood disorder. It is acknowledged that Neuroblastoma is the most common extracranial solid tumor of infancy. It is an embryonal malignancy of the sympathetic nervous system arising from neuroblasts (pluripotent sympathetic cells). Researchers are looking for genetic source of childhood brain tumors. Their main target is Germ cell tumors (GCTs) in children which are masses of tissue formed by the type of immature cells. Germ cell tumors may be malignant, which means cancerous, or they may be benign, which means noncancerous. The common blood disorders in children are leukemia and lymphoma. Leukemia is a disease of the white blood cells. The most common type of pediatric leukemia is acute lymphocytic leukemia. Other types of leukemia that occur less frequently in children are acute myeloid leukemia, and chronic myeloid leukemia. Lymphomas (Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma) are the third most common cancer in children. Based on the characteristics and microscopic appearance of the cancer cell, the pediatric lymphomas are divided into Hodgkin Lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. This Session Includes Pediatric Brain Tumor Models, Neurocutaneous Disorders, Neurofibromatosis, Primitive neuroectodermal tumor, Leukemia, Epigenetics in Pediatric Cancers, Pediatric Neurobiology and  Proton Radiotherapy for Pediatric Brain Tumors.
