Doctors will examine you carefully in order to decide about the optimum treatment. They will possibly examine your blood, take some images of your body or make some tests with you. All these examinations are necessary, even though you may not like some of them or they may hurt a little. You can bear it all knowing that they want to make sure to treat you in a way that will cure you. This is what you and your parents want, too, isn't it?

So do what you can to help!

Even if you don't like some of the examinations: Be strong and let the doctors do everything which is needed. They won't do anything a child can't bear.

Below, you can find a list of examinations which are typical for LCH. Most patients don't need all of them: It depends on where in your body the disease has caused some trouble.
