Children and teens are treated as small adults as their bodies are growing and require unique medical needs as per their ages. They cannot always answer explain their medical conditions and may not always be patient and cooperative during the treatment.
Paediatric hemato-oncologists are experts in dealing with child patients and they know how to examine and treat young children in a way that makes them cooperative. If your pediatrician suggests that your child needs to see a paediatric hemato-oncologist, you can be assured that your child or teen will receive the best possible care for the concerned problem.
