This study investigated the 25-year incidence of childhood cancer in Hawai'i, including sex, age, and ethnic differences and time trends. Leukemia was the most common diagnosis. Japanese in Hawai'i have lower pediatric cancer rates than for the United States. Previous trends toward increasing ethnic disparities in incidence rates were not found. Growing numbers of survivors imply the need for increased follow-up care.
