Pediatric/Childhood Tumors

Childhood cancers are mostly those of the white blood cells (leukemia), brain, bone, and the lymphatic system (lymphoma). Cancerous tumors also can develop in the muscles, kidneys, and nervous system. Like cancers that occur in adults, each type of childhood cancer behaves differently, but all develop because of an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells.

Cancer in children is not very common. Only about one percent of cancers diagnosed in the United States are in children. Almost all children with cancer in the US receive treatment through one of the children’s cancer centers that make up the Children’s Oncology Group. We are very proud that our partner, Seattle Children’s, is one of these centers.

Types of Pediatric/Childhood Tumors We Treat

  • Brain and Neural Tumors
  • Leukemias
  • Sarcomas
  • Lymphomas
  • Liver cancer/Hepatoblastoma
  • Wilms tumor/Nephroblastoma
  • Germ Cell Tumors

Our Approach

The dedication of the pediatric cancer team means your child or teenager will receive a special quality of care.  These young patients have access to the latest cancer therapies and treatments, many of which are based on research breakthroughs at our partner institutions: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and Seattle Children’s.

I want to provide compassionate, detail-oriented, and patient-centered care; what I expect of my own healthcare providers if I had cancer.
