Globocan estimates that in Kenya, there are about 3,000 new cases of childhood cancer diagnosed each year.  However, these numbers are likely underestimates due to inadequate reporting of cases to the national cancer registries.  In addition, many children with cancer are often misdiagnosed as other conditions that present with clinical symptoms and signs that are similar to those of childhood cancers.
