Wilms tumor in children

Wilms Tumor

Wilms Tumor starts in the kidneys and is the most common type of pediatric kidney cancer. Wilms tumors usually only form in one kidney, but sometimes both – only in small cases – and accounts for about 5 percent of all pediatric cancers. This disease is typically found in very young children – 3 to 4 years old – and is not common in children over 6. There are approximately 500 new cases a year in the U.S. and about 9 out of 10 children are cured.
