Wilms tumor treatment



  • My son has been diagnosed with stage 1 Wilms tumour. He has been getting chemo for 4 weeks now. What is the first line of treatment? Is it curable?



  • Hi Namrata,

    We are sorry to hear about your son's diagnosis. Do let us know if we can help in any way.
    In response to your question - treatment of Wilms tumor depends on the stage of the disease, histology (favorable/ unfavorable histology), the age of the child and genetic mutation factors. Surgery is the standard treatment whenever a tumour is operable. This is followed by adjuvant chemotherapy. We would advise you to visit an oncologist to discuss his case further. In case of anything, you can always reach out to us on www.onco.com or cases@onco.com. Take care!
