Pediatric oncology – Margit Medical Center
The pediatric oncology department deals with the diagnosis of childhood cancers and the treatment of children with cancers. Childhood cancers can be effectively treated in most cases, but early detection of the disease is very important. In the case of any group of symptoms, blood test results, specialist opinion, when any hematological or oncological disease is suspected in the child, examinations should be performed as soon as possible.
Oncology treatments are always preceded by very thorough, complex examinations. These tests and lengthy treatment can be extremely stressful for a child and their parents, so high-quality specialist work must include providing strong spiritual support to our patients during the often slow period of recovery.
Attention should also be paid to the fact that children with cancer should develop and grow according to their age, in addition to the primary cure. Maintain close relationships with family and friends during the recovery period.
