Neuroblastoma

Neuroblastoma is a type of cancer that originates in nerve tissue found in several areas of the body.  Neuroblastomas are the most common cancers that occur in infants and in most cases they only affect children five years of age or younger.  The adrenal glands, which are situated directly above the kidneys, are the organs most commonly affected by neuroblastoma although other nerve tissues in the neck, chest and pelvis can also be affected.  In infants younger than one year, the prognosis of neuroblastoma is very good.  Treatment of neuroblastoma may involve surgery and/or chemotherapy for mild to intermediate cases.  In more severe cases of neuroblastoma, a complicated, combined therapy may be required, which is also associated with a lower rate of long-term success.
