Retinoblastoma Treatment

Retinoblastoma is a rare form of eye cancer that primarily affects young children, usually under the age of five. It originates in the retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. The choice of treatment for retinoblastoma depends on factors such as the extent of the disease, the size and location of tumors, and whether the cancer has spread beyond the eye.

The choice of treatment is determined by the specific characteristics of the retinoblastoma and the child’s overall health. Often, a combination of treatments may be used to achieve the best outcomes. Early detection and intervention are crucial for successful treatment and preservation of vision whenever possible.

It’s important for parents or caregivers to work closely with a medical team, including pediatric oncologists and ophthalmologists specializing in retinoblastoma, to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for each individual case.
