Childhood cancer awareness starts with you. From learning the early detection signs and symptoms to finding support and assistance for cancer patients, you are a vital part of the awareness team.
Many of the signs and symptoms are more likely to be caused by something other than cancer. But, if your child has symptoms, it's best to check with a medical professional so the cause can be uncovered and if needed, treated. So many of the signs and symptoms may be ignored because they can appear like common injury or illness. Raising awareness about children's cancer can lead to early detection, which in turn may help improve the outcome.
Only you can help us reach more families. Whether you start a conversation with someone, share this page, like us on Facebook or follow us on Instagram, your support helps childhood cancer awareness reach more people.
Gold is the ribbon color for children's cancer. National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is September. Every day, any month is a great time to bring awareness to children's cancer, there's no need to wait.
We still don't understand the exact causes of cancer. It seems that it may develop from a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Many things in our genetics, our lifestyle, the foods we eat, and the environment we live in may increase or decrease our risk of getting cancer. State cancer profiles are available at cancer.gov
Cancer is when the body produces abnormal cells that crowd out normal cells, making it harder for the body to work properly. These abnormal cells don't die when they should and new cells are made when the body may not need them. The buildup of these extra cells might cause a mass (tumor) to form.
The tumors may be benign (not cancer) or malignant (cancer). Benign tumors may grow and press on nearby areas. When a tumor grows into or presses on an area, it may stop that part of the body from working properly. Both benign and malignant tumors can cause signs or symptoms, need treatment, and may come back.
Cancer can start any place in the body. It may or may not spread to other parts of the body.
