The research which has been conducted on childhood cancer and body abnormalities found that the children who had childhood cancer certainly develop some abnormalities in their body like curvature of the spine, asymmetric lower limbs, etc.
Experts thought that genetic defect can be the main thing which is responsible for the occurrence of such type of abnormalities in the children. But, the recent studies have proved that this genetic defect itself is responsible to develop cancer in small children.
Some genetic syndromes also increase the risk of development of cancer tumors. The developmental genes, which play a key role in the formation of body plan during embryogenesis, are also responsible for the development of childhood cancer.
