Childhood Solid Tumor Types and Programs

  • Solid tumors are cancers that occur in the bones, tissues (such as muscles or tendons), or organs (such as the liver or kidneys). Some types of solid tumors occur only in children, including neuroblastoma and Wilms tumor. Other types can occur in children or adults, but the treatments that are effective for children differ from those used for adults. Although brain tumors are also a type of solid tumor, they require unique forms of treatment that differ from those used for the types of solid tumors listed below.
