Common Pediatric Cancers and Blood Conditions

Sanford Children’s has pediatric specialists that are experts in diagnosing and managing a variety of conditions. Our number of specialties and specialists goes unmatched in the region.

Our pediatric hematologists and oncologists treat:

  • Benign hematologic conditions: These can include anemia, hemophilia, enzyme disorders and more. A combination of lifestyle changes and medication can help manage these inherited blood conditions.

  • Bleeding and clotting disorders: Unnecessary or excessive clotting can block blood flow to vital organs. It is treated with blood-thinning medications.

  • Blood cancers (leukemia): Blood cancers need to be monitored and can be treated with chemotherapy, radiation therapy, stem-cell transplants or a combination of these treatments.

  • Bone marrow failure syndromes: Children whose bone marrow can’t properly make blood cells have bone marrow failure. Treatment for these conditions depends on the failure’s cause.

  • Childhood cancers: Your child’s treatment options will depend on the type of cancer and its severity. Treatment can include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy or a combination of these options.

  • Childhood skin cancer: Skin cancer is rare in children, but it can happen. Children should see a dermatologist if they have an odd-looking or unusually large mole.

  • Myelodysplasia: Visit Sanford Children’s Myelodysplasia Clinic if your child has this rare bone marrow disease. It needs highly specialized treatments, or it may progress into leukemia.

  • Survivorship: Children who have survived cancer can experience side effects months or years after cancer treatment. At Sanford Children’s, child cancer survivors get long-term follow-up care to help keep them healthy years after cancer.
