Neuroblastoma


Neuroblastoma is a tumour arising from special (sympathetic) nerve cells which run in a chain like fashion up the back of a child's abdomen and chest and into the skull, following the line of the spinal cord. The most common site for a neuroblastoma to grow is in the abdomen. About 50% start in the adrenal gland lying above the kidney but some tumours grow at the back of the chest and occasionally even higher up towards the neck.
