Neuroblastoma is a cancer that develops from the immature nerve cells that are found in several areas of the body. The most common areas for the development of this cancer are around the adrenal glands. However, the cancer can develop in other areas as well such chest, neck and near the spine, where groups of nerve cells exist. The symptoms of the condition include abdominal pain, presence of a mass under the skin that is tender to touch along with constipation or diarrhoea.
HOW IS NEUROBLASTOMA DIAGNOSED?
Oncologist may conduct a thorough physical examination and evaluate your symptoms. Urine tests, blood tests are ordered to check levels of certain chemicals. Imaging tests like X-rays may be conducted to confirm diagnosis. A tissue biopsy helps find the cause and the stage of Neuroblastoma.
