Neuroblastoma

Neuroblastoma is a very rare type of cancerous tumor that almost always affects children. Neuroblastoma develops from nerve cells in the fetus called neuroblasts. Usually, as a fetus matures and after birth, the neuroblasts develop normally. Sometimes they become cancerous, causing neuroblastoma.
