Children’s cancer and hormones

More and more children are surviving cancer due to advances in medicine. Many of the cancer treatments however, can cause damage to the hormonal system in the body, leading to various upsets. It can be very gratifying to anticipate and treat these as outcomes are very good. The best way is to consult a Paediatric endocrinologist yourself, even if you have not been asked to by your main treating doctor. This is because awareness about these highly specialised areas in Paediatrics is yet to increase within the medical community.
