Community, Stories & Info

Neuroblastoma is a type of cancer that develops in neuroblasts, which are early forms of nerve cells, in several areas of the body, most commonly in and around the adrenal glands. It almost exclusively affects children five years old or younger, and rarely occurs in older children. Signs and symptoms depends on which part of the body is affected, and treatments include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and stem cell transplant.
