Signs of Childhood Cancer

What are the signs of childhood cancer? So many of the signs and symptoms may be ignored because they appear like common injury or illness.  Raising awareness about the signs and symptoms of children's cancer can lead to early detection, which in turn may help improve the outcome.  Only you can help us reach more families.

Early diagnosis can help improve the outcome.  Raising awareness about children's cancer symptoms is the first step to an early diagnosis.  When cancer is identified early, children may have a greater probability of survival, less suffering, and less intensive treatment.  Significant improvements can be made in the lives of children with early cancer detection and avoiding delays in treatment.

Signs of Childhood Cancer

Signs of Childhood Cancer

Signs of Childrens Cancer
  • Easy, unexplained bruising or bleeding
  • Frequent headaches
  • Ongoing pain in one area
  • Limping
  • Unexplained, persistent fever
  • Sudden vision changes
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Unexplained loss of energy
  • An unusual lump or swelling

While many of these signs of childhood cancer are more likely caused by an infection or an injury, seeking medical treatment is the best way to identify the cause.  While some cancers can not be prevented, early diagnosis can help improve outcomes.

Cancer signs in children can be difficult to recognize because early symptoms often look like a regular illness or injury.   The "usual" bumps, bruises, cuts, scrapes and colds are normal.  It's when they occur for no reason, or continue for longer than expected that they may be of concern.  Regular check ups with your doctor can help determine if there is cause for concern.

It's important for your child to have regular check-ups by a doctor.  Especially if they have unusual symptoms or signs that persist.

With your help, there is hope for our littlest warriors.  Here at the American Childrens Cancer Benevolence Fund, we are dedicated to collaborating with hospitals, medical centers and other organizations to identify those families most distressed as a direct result of their child’s malignancy in order to assist with medical bills, treatment costs, equipment, transportation needs and other overwhelming expenses.

While health insurance covers most costs for diagnosis and treatments, it may not cover ALL of the costs associated with a child's cancer.  The American Childrens Cancer Benevolence Fund serves children and their families with out discrimination.  We view all families as deserving of respect and dignity. Timely, temporary assistance can sustain a family until a long term plan is developed and implemented.
