Description:
An average of 128 cancers was diagnosed per year in children aged under 15 years between 1994 and 2011 (Table 1). In older teenagers aged between 15 and 19 years, an additional 68 cases were diagnosed per year, or a total of 196 cases under age 20 (Table 1). These figures mostly involve malignant cancers but the International Classification of Childhood Cancer (ICCC), followed in this report, also includes non-malignant tumours of the brain & central nervous system, which made up about 9% of cases tabulated here.
