Abstract

Nearly 12,400 children and adolescents under the age of twenty years will be newly diagnosed with cancer each year in the United States. This means that a newborn has an approximately 1 in 315 chance of developing cancer in the first two decades of life. This chapter reviews the epidemiology of cancer in children. Topics covered include overall incidence, mortality and morbidity, acute lymphoblastic leukemia and acute myeloid leukemia, brain/central nervous system cancers, lymphomas, sympathetic nervous system tumors, soft tissue sarcoma, renal cancers, bone tumors, germ cell tumors, retinoblastoma, and hepatic tumors.
