In brief: Leukemia/lymphoma
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia is the most common cancer in childhood.
It is still common in adolescents, but lymphoma becomes more common in the teenage years, and the frequency of hodgkin lymphoma and nhl approaches that of all. Brain tumors are common in childhood as well, but not nearly as common as in adults.
