Complications of pediatric cancer and cancer treatment may escalate into a medical emergency, and require urgent visit to an emergency room (ER). Pediatric cancer patients often have compromised immune systems, making it harder to recover from even common illnesses, with some of these illnesses even becoming life-threatening.
Common reasons for pediatric cancer patients needing the ER include sudden onset of high fever, pain, and vomiting. Such symptoms need to be treated immediately before they lead to greater complications.
