Children ages 3-17 who are undergoing port access receive both standard care, topical medicine for numbing (LMX4), and the study intervention which utilizes ultrasound to speed the onset of LMX4 from 30 minutes to 5 minutes. The procedures will be performed on 2 separate visits to the clinic. The child's pain with the access procedure is evaluated.
