Retinoblastoma is a type of eye cancer that affects the retina, the inner layer of the eye. Although it can happen at any age, it’s usually diagnosed in children under two years old —often while a baby is still in the womb. At Nemours Children's, the oncology experts in our Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders work closely with our pediatric ophthalmologists to diagnose and treat eye tumors early, even in the tiniest newborns.
Our comprehensive pediatric oncology team in the Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (a Children’s Oncology Group member institution) work together with Nemours ophthalmology specialists and affiliate institutions to offer the most advanced treatment options for kids of all ages with retinoblastoma. Our specialists are also pioneers in detecting ophthalmologic disorders in utero (while babies are still in the womb). This helps us diagnose and provide retinoblastoma treatment as early as possible, so that kids have the best chance at excellent outcomes.
