The word “cancer” brings different feelings to different people; to some, it’s that feeling of pain, to some is that feeling of a warrior, a champion, or a fighter. Surprisingly, anywhere you mention the word cancer, several people associate it to only adults. Many people are not aware that children also have cancer. Yes. Children also have cancer.
Cancer can start any place in the body and can happen to anybody, whether old or young, including children. Cancer starts when cells grow out of control and crowd out normal cells. This makes it hard for the body to work the way it should. These growths may invade adjoining parts of the body and can spread to other organs. Cancer records as the world’s second highest killer disease accounting for an average annual death of about 8million both in children and adults with 2015 recording the highest death of 8.8 million.
