Hepatoblastoma is a rare type of childhood cancer that occurs in the liver. The primary functions of the liver include filtering and storing blood, processing the food we eat, and making vital proteins for the body to use. The liver has a right lobe and a left lobe.
Children with hepatoblastoma are treated through the Liver Tumor Program at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center. We have some of the most experienced pediatric liver oncologists, surgeons, and pathologists – as well as internationally recognized pediatric subspecialists who use sophisticated technology and therapies to maximize outcomes for the children we treat.
