About400 new pediatric cancer cases are diagnosed and treated annually in Romania, which means an annual incidence of ten cases per 1,000 children, according to a study presented by the Romanian Society of Pediatric Onco-Hematology.

According to this study, 3,708 cancer cases were discovered with children over 2010-2017, the highest frequency being the age group 0-4 years, and the fewest cases with teenagers (15-19 years).

The most frequent tumors affecting children are leukemia (31%), followed by lymphomas (16%), tumors of the central nervous system (14%), bone tumors and soft tissue (7%), the study shows.

The average survival rate with children in Romania diagnosed with cancer is 69.1%, 10% lower than the Western European average, but according to the average of Eastern Europe -70% (Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia).

The Romanian Society of Pediatric Onco-Hematology recently presented study results about the survival of cancer children in Romania diagnosed over 2010-2013, possible after the setting up of the National Register of Child Cancers in Romania.
