About the Speciality

The Department of Oncology deals with the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of cancer.

Childhood Cancer is a catastrophic disease, if untreated it is potentially fatal. It afflicts all communities. Based on recent data, it is estimated that 10 – 12 children per 1, 00,000 population will develop cancer every year. Hence in India, with a population of over a billion, it is roughly estimated that about 50,000 children develop cancer each year and many either go undiagnosed or without adequate treatment. Of these, a mere 15 – 20% i.e. 10,000 children are able to reach a cancer unit. And among the latter 40 to 50% i.e. 5,000 children drop out of treatment. Most children therefore die without proper therapy. This is the reason that lay public, as well as many in the medical fraternity believe that cancer is potentially incurable in India.

JNU Hospital

It is worthwhile knowing that of the 8.5 lakh cases of cancer that occur annually in India, only 3 – 5 % occur in children. These cancers are very fast growing but also very sensitive to proper treatment. Although treatment is complex and often long, cure is a very realistic and practically achievable goal. Although the actual number of children who develop cancer is small, the cure rate is high and total number of productive life years saved by curing these children is significantly high and therefore the effort in treating appropriately is all the more worthwhile and fulfilling.

Diagnostic and Clinical Services

The department to guide the cancer patients during all phases of their treatment follows the given steps.

  • Explaining the diagnosis and stage of cancer.
