Birth Defects Linked to Increased Risk of Brain Tumors
The results of an intensive study conducted at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital in Palo Alto, California revealed that children born with birth defects were nearly four times more likely to suffer from primitive neuroectodermal tumors compared to normal children.
Because birth defects or fetal death during pregnancy often involves some type of genetic abnormality, that may explain this higher cancer risk. Parents of children born with birth defects should be especially alert for signs of cancer and tumors in children.
As I represent so many families who have children with birth defects from SSRI and anti-seizure medications like Lexapro, Celexa, Zoloft, Prozac, Paxil, Depakote, and Topamax, these findings are especially troubling for my client base. As always, The Michael Brady Lynch Firm serves as a full-service support center for both the child and parent in any such circumstance.
