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.
