Retinoblastoma


Retinoblastoma is a tumour of early childhood arising in the cells of the light sensitive lining of the eye known as the retina. In about two-thirds of children only one eye is affected but in one-third tumours develop in both eyes. Children with both eyes affected often have a parent who has retinoblastoma. Every child of an affected parent is usually screened regularly from birth.
