Neuroblastoma is a rare disease in which a solid tumor is formed by nerve cells called neuroblasts. Instead of functioning normally, in children with neuroblastoma, these cells become cancer cells instead. The Solid Tumor Oncology Program at University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital is one of the nation's largest multidisciplinary programs caring for children with solid tumors. Because our team of pediatric specialists treats so many children with complex solid tumors, we are particularly well versed in the treatment of these conditions and have special expertise in even the most rare tumors.
