Wilms' Tumor Information

A disease that most commonly affects children, Wilms' tumor occurs when cancer cells are found in certain parts of the kidney. In the early stages, most people have no symptoms. However, as the tumor grows, symptoms may include:
 
  • Blood in the urine
  • Abdominal pain (stomach pain)
  • Fever
  • Nausea.
 
It should be noted that these symptoms are often seen with many other medical conditions and do not necessarily mean your child has cancer. Your child's healthcare provider will be able to rule out other health problems and make a definitive diagnosis.
