Globally, childhood cancer is on the rise. It is now estimated that one in 408 children worldwide will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 15 years.

South Africa’s tertiary academic hospitals have paediatric oncology units that provide specialised treatment. Unfortunately, less than half of expected cases are being diagnosed, and of those diagnosed, most are in stage three or four. Yet with early detection and specialised treatment the survival rate can be much higher.
