I find it extremely difficult to deal with children who have cancer, and their families. It is the single biggest reason why I do not treat kids. Too hard. The doctors and nurses who treat paediatric malignancies are absolutely fantastic. More power to them.
The only favourable point about kiddie cancers are that they are relatively more treatable as compared to the adult cancers. The horrible part is failing.
Cancer, Medicine and Life: A cancer and medicine blog to help on the journey of life. Medicine and Medical Oncology are rapidly changing fields and is hard for most people to keep up. A diagnosis of any illness, in particular cancer is devastating news for anyone, and the hope is that we can share knowledge and support each other.
